Project Management Series

Most Bass Connections project teams appoint at least one person to serve as a project manager. This role is critical to the effective functioning of project teams and offers a great opportunity to develop experience managing complex projects.

In 2018-19, we partnered with the Duke Project Management Community of Practice to offer a Bass Connections Project Management Series. This series has now ended but project managers are invited to view the session materials below and to visit the other recommended online resources.
