DPMI 8698A Foundations of Development Project Management


Participants will learn the necessary components of project design. Implementation of strategies to ensure sustainable benefits and alternative evaluation methods will also be discussed. At the module's completion, participants will create an overall evaluation plan for a project along with a detailed project implementation plan using the results framework (RF), an approach to project development that is widely used in bilateral and multinational organizations including USAID, the World Bank and UNDP.


DPMI 8698B Applied Development Project Management


This course features two modules. Participants master tools and skills needed to effectively assume the roles of facilitator, trainer, and change agent. Local human resource development is an important component in every development project. The module focuses on transferring skills to participants so they can conduct their own training programs. Topics covered include needs assessments, adult learning practices, community mobilization, stakeholder negotiation, conflict mediation, and the training of trainers. In the other module, participants, working within a context of social entrepreneurship, become proficient in the use of tools and techniques to conduct an analysis of vision and mission; identify core competencies; and forge strategic partnerships to enhance organizational effectiveness. Innovative software applications are introduced to support a simulation.



DPMI Directed Study Courses (DPMI 698):


DPMI participants may enroll in either one or two DPMI directed study courses. Although both courses carry the same number (DPMI 698), the course titles that appear on a student's transcript differ. The first DPMI 698 course (Foundations of Development Project Management) is a prerequisite for the second DPMI 698 offering (Applied Development Project Management). In other words, students may not enroll in Applied Development Project Management unless they have already completed Foundations of Development Project Management or are concurrently enrolled in it.
