This month we started the PMD Pro renew and rewrite process. Board Members, staff, and PMD Pro specialists met for three days and were able to outline the new edition of PMD Pro structure and content. An amazing output!

Well, actually, this process has started last year, when we collected suggestions and feedbacks. Trainers and practitioners have recommended what could be included in the guide, what should be more detailed, and if there is any tool, technique, or content that should be removed.

Why are we updating PMD Pro?

PM4NGOs has developed the Program Management for Development Professionals Guide to provide advice, tools, and guidance to help Program Managers work effectively at a pivotal level in local, national and international NGOs.

Program managers play an essential role by providing an interface between their organization’s strategic management team and project managers who are accountable for the successful delivery of small, medium, and large projects.

Collecting the community feedback is a key step to improve the guide before the grand launch, in July.

The Guide has been soft launched – for consultation and feedbacks. The consultation period is from May 9th to 31st. We would like to invite you to read the Guide and then send us your feedback.
