Scientific Method and Project Management [2016 Webinar Recording] The success or failure of a project typically hinges on the application of sound project management fundamentals. Far too often, projects are not completed on time, within scope, and within budget since the process of managing the basic and critical elements of a project have not been clearly thought out, documented, and implemented. For engineering and technical projects, application of the scientific method should be embedded in the project plan as a task. This task is very often overlooked, and can be the cause of project failures, especially for those projects that are technical and deemed complex. This webinar addresses the use of a simple project management scheme, and how the scientific method can be embedded as a task in the project’s execution phase. Personal examples will be shared. Who will Benefit Industry, Manufacturers, Governmental Agencies, Universities, Construction, and other organizations that conduct projects – especially technical, engineering, and scientific. In cooperation with Laser Product Safety LLC The Presenter Peter Boden: Mr. Boden is an Executive Technical Consultant and Director of Training & Safety for Laser Product Safety, LLC located near Research Triangle Park, NC. He holds a MS in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University. He has 32 years of experience in R&D, Engineering Project Management, and is recognized as a U.S. and global laser and photo-biological optical radiation safety expert regarding FDA CDRH, OSHA, IEC, ANSI, and UL Safety Standard compliance, regulation, testing, training, and laser facilities safety assessment. Mr. Boden presently serves on the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to IEC Technical Committee 76 – Optical Radiation Safety and Laser Equipment, and is active on many other U.S. and global technical committees on laser and photo-biological safety including ANSI Safety Standards Committee Z136.1, “Safe Use of Lasers,” and ANSI Subcommittee SSC-8, “Safe Use of Lasers in R&D and Testing,” as applied to laser facilities and university research labs. Mr. Boden was the catalyst for the formation of the IEC Committee of Testing Laboratories Working Group 6 for Photo-biological Safety. He has assessed laser testing laboratories around the globe, and has directed the building of laser testing laboratories in the U.S., Japan, and Europe. His expertise is acknowledged by many awards and publications.
