Project model

Working in project form
Within the University, large and small projects as well as inquiry assignments of various kinds are continuously being conducted. To run these temporary activities in a structured and efficient manner, we have developed a project model consisting of four stages. The model is intended as a support for assignments implemented in project form. The project model contains a project process, templates and function descriptions.

The project process

The project process consists of four stages: preliminary study, launch, implementation and conclusion.

There are a number of templates for each stage, available under the relevant heading.

Preliminary study stage

A preliminary study is conducted to describe and assess the project proposal’s feasibility. The preliminary study may include alternative solutions. The proposals are to be described in a preliminary study report. Usually, there is no steering group at the preliminary study stage, as the decision on the project’s implementation has not yet been taken.

Launch stage

The launch stage involves planning the project’s implementation, documenting goals, with costs, stakeholders, etc. in a project plan. A well-implemented launch stage is crucial to the project’s chances of success.

The launch stage includes the appointment of a project principal, steering group and project manager.

Implementation stage

The implementation stage is when the project work is carried out. The project manager works together with the project group and reports to the steering group.

Depending on the type of project, the implementation stage can take various forms.

Conclusion stage

The conclusion stage involves writing the final report and submitting the project result to the organisation responsible.

Ongoing projects

Here you will find a list of current projects handled by the project office, in Swedish (PDF 200kB, new window).

Training in project methodology 

Training courses in project expertise and project management are available via Kompetensportalen.

What is the role of the project office?

The project office is part of the University management staff and deals with projects for which the vice-chancellor, the university director, the study programmes board or the research board have taken decisions on implementation and funding.  

The project office provides support at the start of the project, in drawing up project plans, suggesting templates, following up and supporting project managers and project principals. The office reports back on the overall picture of ongoing projects.
