The present deliverable D10.1, named Project Management Handbook, is the first document outputted by WP10, covering Project Management duties. This document is the natural evolution and combination of all initial project description documents, namely Description of Work (DoW), its evolution on the Grant Agreement (on which the project structure and roles were outlined) and the Consortium Agreement (on which inteGRIDy partners arrange the way they will interact). More specifically, D10.1 document covers all management-related activities, providing all needed tools to efficiently organize the work flow.
Guidelines, definition of processes and procedures, identification of tools (including set-up), quality assurance, risk management and publication practices (initial approach, to be further developed on Dissemination deliverables) are topics covered by this report. All aforementioned mechanisms and tools are always conceived in an attempt to ease partner’s contributions, building a common working framework for the project.
The following areas are covered by this document:
- Management structure
- Project roles and responsibilities, including both internally and with the European Commission.
- IT tools and document handling procedures
- Project management plan and work breakdown structure
- Quality and risk management
- Reporting procedures
This can be considered as a living document, as it might be updated along the project, due to responsibility changes, experiences and potential tool modifications.
