Our training in project management course presents necessary concepts and tools that can be applied in project management and that can generate a substantial change to reach the proposed objectives. The overall objective of this training is to strengthen the capacity of development projects management in the community, so that they can be executed efficiently and effectively.

One of the challenges faced by refugee-led organizations and other non-governmental organizations that promote economic and social development in our community is how to transform proposals into practical actions improving the well-being of the community and making sure that these results are achieved in time and with the available resources.

The contents of the courses are aligned with the guidelines and standards of good project management practices presented in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The PM4R methodology adapts international good practices, tools and standards on project management to the world of projects for development.

All of our modules include practical cases that help the learners understand key concepts and tools for project management. Power point presentations are made by experts with extensive experience in the subject and who have the PMI’s PMP (Project Management Professional) certification; and readings, among other activities.

Our training workshops offered face-to-face or e-Learning in one of the two UN working languages - English or French includes the certification exam as part of the five-day intensive training workshop. Our most learning activities and teaching tools include: PowerPoint presentations Power point presentations are used to disseminate course information to participants. They are distributed to participants at the beginning of each module and a soft copy is given to participants at the end. A particular attention is given to both participants’ practical experiences and the instructor's ones. Readings Readings allow learners to understand in greater detail each of the tools of the PM4R methodology. Furthermore, at the end of each reading they will find bibliographic references which allow them to get more acquainted with the topic presented in each module. Case study The case study activity promotes the analysis of the topics discussed during the course starting from a case study that has been developed from a real project. This case allows participants to put in practice each of the tools presented in the PM4R methodology. To facilitate the learning process, participants are provide with a partial solution of the exercise that they have to complete. After developing the practice exercise and answering exercise questions, they become able to compare their answers with the answers suggested by the course instructors (trainers).

At the end of the workshop, all the learners will be able to identify the seven (7) steps of the project management for results (PM4R) methodology:

  1. To understand the conceptualization of a project from the perspective of a country's development strategies to obtain a better understanding of factors that influence a development project.
