Why did you pick the research you are working on? Why did other projects get cut? Even if you can provide some answers to these questions, this session will give you a framework to better structure your decision-making process, to ensure you keep your goal in mind throughout the project's life, and—perhaps most importantly—to know when to cancel work you have put so much time and energy into. Discover key questions that should be asked before a project starts, and learn best practices for research strategy, peer review, policy editing, and other steps that can improve research quality without breaking the research budget.
