Organizations that depend on external funding to achieve their objectives have to apply to various sources to obtain project funding. However, most organizations are often not aware of the basic requirements of a project proposal. As a result a project proposal may be rejected or unnecessarily delayed because it does not meet the required criteria. The present Certificate Program in Project Management is designed to help participants to understand the principles and formats of writing an effective project proposal.
As you are aware and have experienced in your workplace, that in this ever changing environment, projects are natural means to those changing needs that cannot be addressed within the organization’s normal operational limits. Yet, many projects failed due to lack of disciplined, systematic approach to managing projects.
Project Development processes are complex and multi-dimensional by nature. Adequately monitoring and evaluating these processes is challenging. Keeping track of progress, collecting data for management and for learning, providing sufficient reporting to account upwards to donors, downwards to beneficiaries and sideways to other partners requires a comprehensive and practical monitoring system. The challenge of evaluation lies in its potential to stimulate learning, to motivate people and to propose directives for the future. This Intensive five day course will enable you to turn monitoring and evaluation into steering and learning experiences for you and your organization.

If you want to have strong, attractive project proposals and desires to have strong knowledge of project management and needs to gain the valuable fundamentals of Monitoring and Evaluation and want things done strategically and making a lasting milestone in your career, this Certificate Program in Project Management is definitely for you!
