This course will help participants to grasp what is meant by Project Management in development projects, in line with the philosophies of the different donor organizations. International cooperation in development project management requires a common understanding of planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM+E).
Concepts such as "PCM – Project Cycle Management" and "Managing for Development Results" are explored. As a fundamental component of the course we examine the Logical Framework Approach as development instrument. One of the major challenges of Project Management is interdisciplinary teamwork. The course helps participants to become familiar with work in interdisciplinary multicultural groups and the application of Project Management instruments and tools.
By the end of the course participants will have a good knowledge of the principles of Project Management in development projects. They will have practised its principal mechanisms and be in a position to apply them.
- Basic elements of successful Project Management, the importance of group work and participation in Project Management (team-building processes in Project Management)
- The phases of PCM (Project Cycle Management)
- Impact Orientation - Managing for Development Results (MfDR) and how to successfully adapt the Logical Framework Approach and its tools to the MfDR
- The principles of Monitoring and Evaluation
What does live online training mean?
Our online trainings are not pre-recorded training videos, webinars for large audiences or self-paced e-learning courses. They are virtual live trainings delivered by our trainers in real-time, focusing on the interaction of a small group of remote participants. Just like our face-to-face trainings, these virtual classrooms aim at tailoring the discussions and learning experiences to the training needs of the participants.
Requirements: to attend our live online trainings, a reliable high-speed internet connection and a computer or laptop running Windows or iOS are required (including audio and video). The Humboldt-Universität of Berlin uses the videoconferencing platform Zoom for virtual classrooms as well as digital tools such as Moodle. We strongly recommend an external headset for better sound quality.
The virtual classroom sessions with the trainers and the fellow participants via Zoom are complemented by group exercises, assignments as well as time for self-study and reflection.
Professionals in the field of international cooperation and development. A good command of the English language is a prerequisite.
