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).
