Managing European projects in disruptive situations within changing environments needs an agile approach and the development of creative and innovative solutions to the challenges ahead.
The All-You-Need-To-Know Guide to Running ONE Meeting Projects (The ONE Guide) complements the ONE Business Case (which provides evidence and focuses on raising awareness) and the ONE Virtual Toolkit (which presents a systematised collection of tools for virtual collaboration).
WHO IS THE ONE GUIDE FOR?
The ONE Guide aims at project managers who need to or want to change the way of conducting transnational projects and provides a step-by-step approach for implementing transnational projects with just ONE meeting. To achieve this, our experiences in ONE as well as learnings, failures and successes of our own work are cornerstones of our proof of concept – paired with valuable experiences and resources from outside the ONE consortium.
HOW TO READ THE ONE GUIDE?
The ONE Guide contains three sections, each of them stand alone. Depending on what you are searching, it can make sense to delve into just one of them.
SECTION A presents the cornerstones of the ONE approach: (1) Agile project management, (2) Sustainability and (3) Accessibility. We highlight their central features, reflect on our ONE learnings and share some internal and external resources.
SECTION B contains the ONE approach with regard to the different phases of EU projects. We outline a step-by-step approach on how to manage and conduct your project with ONE meeting only: from proposal development, project planning and implementation to dissemination and exploitation, quality assurance and evaluation. We do this by focusing on ONE specifics within the different phases, sharing ONE learnings, ONE resources and some tips and advice, based on our learnings.
A particular topic within this section is the ONE meeting itself: This ONE face-to-face meeting is of special importance for the partnership and could take place at different stages of the project.
SECTION C provides in a nutshell five central criteria as things to be mindful of when conducting transnational projects that are based mostly on virtual collaboration – as is the ONE approach.
