3. Plan your search

What is project management? Why and how is it useful to support Health & Wellbeing projects?

Before you start searching:

  • Identify the main concepts in your question or topic.
  • Think about how these concepts may be represented in the literature. In other words, do people use alternative terms (synonyms) to describe something? 

To address the question you will need to consider Project Management theories, tools and techniques. A good starting point for finding terminology and concepts is your text book, Managing Projects in  Health and Social Care by Vivien Martin.

Create a mind map or map out your concepts in a table to organise your ideas. 

Here is an example of a table, this table is not comprehensive, once you start searching you will come across more keywords:
