The Netherlands School for Innovative Education has announced a new course on project management for non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The week-long course will run August 13th to August 20th in 2017, and attendees will learn the foundational concepts of project management along with practical skills such as how to write a project charter, determine project objectives, and assess risks. You’ll also learn core budgeting theories and how to prepare a high-quality business plan, ultimately leaving the course with the knowledge of how to design and implement your own projects.
The curriculum has been designed for NGO workers, especially those who want to improve their project management skills. However, workers with project management experience are still invited to attend, for the course will offer a refresher on foundational ideas and holds the potential to offer new insights.
Attendees will benefit from intense learning sessions during the length of the program. The course is based on a combination of the Project Management Professional methodology along with some theories borrowed from MBA programs, such as Lean Start-Up Theory and Minimum Viable Product. In addition to learning how to write a project charter and determine a project’s objectives, you will also learn how to prepare a stakeholders register and a risk register. Participants will learn how to write a business plan, and – using Minimum Viable Product theory – to identify the minimum requirements for accomplishing a project’s goal. Theoretical lessons will be combined with practical application, meaning participants will be given opportunities to practice what they learn during the sessions. By the end of the program, you’ll leave with the ability to create and realize projects in a professional manner.
The course will take place in Moscow, Russia, and course participants will be given a day to explore the city, which means you can visit landmarks such as Red Square and the Kremlin. The price of the course is €490, and that fee includes the course program (along with all study materials), accommodation, all meals, and a visa invitation.
