Abstract: The core of scientific research is turning new ideas into reality. From theschool science fair to the search for the secrets of dark energy, high-qualityresearch consists of scientific investigation constrained within the scope of awell-defined project. Large or small, generously funded or just scrapingby,scientific projects use time, money, and information to turn ideas intoplans, plans into action, and action into results. While we, as a community, domuch to educate students in the techniques of research, we do notsystematically train students in the nature and organization of scientificprojects or in the techniques of project management. We propose a two-prongedattack to address this issue in the next decade. First, to generate a broadbase of future scientists who have a basic familiarity with the ideas ofprojects, we propose that the community develop standards for the content of aproject design and management course in astronomy and astrophysics. Second, totrain future scientists to assume leadership roles in new investigations inastronomy and astrophysics, we propose that the community develop standards forgraduate programs in the area of research project leadership.
