Institutional Strategic Planning
To succeed in today’s highly competitive research environment, institutions must develop effective, coordinated strategies that maximize their strengths and capitalize on diverse opportunities.
Having a good research idea is only the beginning of success in today’s highly competitive funding environment. Grant applicants not only must know the range of potential funders; they also must have the skill to craft a competitive application that matches the funder’s objectives.
Scientists have many career options, but selecting the one that best suits them can be challenging. With decades of experience in academics, research, government, and industry, our mentors at GWM have a deep commitment to advancing the careers of others.
Now more than ever, scientists must be able to explain research and present facts that promote their professions and support valid beliefs and effective public policy. Communication skills also are critical to an effective career in science, research, administration, and leadership.
