Defining Science Requirements, Managing Scope, & Ensuring Delivery

To characterize and quantify how our nation’s ecosystems are changing, National Ecological Observatory Network’s (NEON) leadership established project management methods to communicate and govern Operations across its 81 sites, in 20 regions, performing instrumented and observational sampling, to publish 177 data products. This session highlighted project management practices we find to be effective when juggling competing needs of customers, fieldwork, EPO, and cyberinfrastructure.

Presented on April 4th at the 2019 Large Facilities Workshop.
