Management of Development Projects and Programs
This two-week intensive course uses the Goal-Oriented Project Planning Model aimed at a systematic way of relating all the important components of a project or program plan.  It starts with stakeholders analysis, then identification of the problem that needs to be solved.  Both management content and process elements are analyzed and strategies mapped out towards the solution of the identified problem.  The indicators for the measurement of achievement of the project or program objectives in solving the identified problem are objectively verifiable and the means of verification are identified.  Tools in the analysis of the different phases of the planning for implementation, monitoring and evaluation are operationally designed.

Who should attend
Development project and program planners, managers, coordinators, and others involved in these functions are invited.
