PROJECT MONITORING AND EVALUATION

2019 Training

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Effective programs and projects are not something that simply happens but are well thought out and planned series of activities and events.  Therefore, in addition to knowing “what the current situation is,” what people think about “it,” what can be done to improve the situation, and what are the results after the fact, realistic Project management planning requires some understanding, knowledge and application of a few statistically-based tools and techniques.  Subsequently, careful monitoring and evaluation should be undertaken to determine whether or not the Project ¾as planned ¾is/was on track; so that timely adjustments can be made, and objectives have a reasonable opportunity of being attained successfully.

This course introduces the participant to the overall philosophy, concepts and particular steps in Project Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, as well as enabling the participant to acquire some “hands-on” skill using statistical tools and techniques for conducting surveys and assessing the results.

HUMAN ENERGY MANAGEMENT

2019 Training

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This is a 2-day practical workshop to better manage your energy, not time!
 
From the Harvard Business Review’s “Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time” article: The core problem with working longer hours is that time is a finite resource.  Energy is a different story. Defined in physics as the capacity to work, energy comes from four main wellsprings in human beings: the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. In each, energy can be systematically expanded and regularly renewed by establishing specific rituals—behaviors that are intentionally practiced and precisely scheduled, with the goal of making them unconscious and automatic as quickly as possible.”
