About This Course
In this course, you will learn the basics of results-based project management. After an introduction to the results framework and its associated performance indicators, you will learn how monitoring systems and evaluations provide a crucial source of evidence for management decision-making.
This project management course is designed to address the growing demand for managers in Africa and around the world, who can use results-based approaches to design, implement and manage an ever growing range of programs and projects. Monitoring and evaluation (key results based management tools) are increasingly called upon within public service, non-governmental sectors and multi-lateral development agencies to help ensure that resources are put to optimum use and that citizens and beneficiaries are assured of receiving the benefits that are committed to them.
