The planning and co-ordination of a project, regardless of the size of the project or the organization requires a specific set of competencies in managing time, money, people, and materials. Project Management is the set of management techniques applied to enable the integrated management of performance, time, cost and human relations frameworks pertaining to a project, to achieve the goals of the project; delivering on time and within budget. Laced with case studies, this program will familiarise participants with the Microsoft Project software and use the Log-Frame Approach as tool used for systematic planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating projects/ programmes.
