I'm putting various links to project management resources here to synthesize how they may be tied to science.
- Management for Scientists by Addgene
- Project Management by Nick Jenkinson
- Project Management for Scientists
- Social Loafing
- Mythical Man Month
- Amdahl's law
- Gustafson's law
- W Edwards Deming
- Herbert Simon
Examples of Project Management failures in science/basic research:
- Taylorism - Don't want to squash creativity.
- Micromanagement example: guy who almost derailed LIGO
