Strategic Project Management for Development

Manage meaningful and sustainable change

Meaningful development results can be achieved only via a deep understanding of the needs of the beneficiaries and a solid engagement with the stakeholders concerned. During the entire project cycle, project management practices must be adapted to reflect the complexity of social change and to translate proposals into actions that improve communities’ development and deliver positive change within the time and resources available.
