Good management can't save a bad project, but poor management can easily ruin a good one. This course takes project management to the next level, using real life humanitarian and development projects to dive deeper into what tools, processes, and strategies are needed to ensure the right project is delivered to the right population, on time and on budget.
Over the 3-day training the participants will critically analyse case study documents from complex projects in the sector and work through the project cycle to understand how different tools can be used in practical terms at each stage.
