Management of SHARE Operations

This project is tied to Dr. Schuller's lead on all projects of the Operations Department at SHARE Central at MEA. It entails creating the overall project timetable with milestones, deliverables and deadlines, and monitoring the progress of the project schedule and perform adjustments as needed. Further, it comprises the final summative evaluation of fieldwork outcomes, tracking of milestones reached by country teams and survey businesses, management of work processes within SHARE Central (between database management and operations team), including integration of new sub-projects, coordination of collaboration between software developer CentERdata and SHARE Central, and between SHARE Central and university-based country teams and lead on planning and conducting the Train-The-Trainer sessions (TTT).

Tasks in this project also include the conceptualization and management of SHARE quality control process including fieldwork monitoring. Further tasks include writing of the summative evaluation report of SHARE Operations after the completion of a wave (“Compliance Profiles”). A substantial amount of time is being spent on HR-related activities such as staff meetings, consulting with co-workers, solving issues related to project prioritization and communication issues that arise as part of the day-to-day business.
