If you’re involved in the management of a research program, you need to manage current investments to ensure value is delivered for stakeholders, manage expectations and failures, and ensure ideas being funded align to strategic goals. This can be complicated and overwhelming, especially if you manage a program with many current projects and receive numerous applications. Understanding which scientific proposals are those that will provide value is not an easy task. It can take a lot of work to sift through all of the detail and you need to be able to understand what’s being proposed and how this potentially aligns with organisational funding priorities, neither of which you may be an expert in. Good ideas can be rejected and poor ideas progressed if the research manager isn’t on their game.
