What are your thoughts on the training / exam?

“I have no doubt that PMD Pro is the best project management course for professionals in the third sector. The great advantage of PMD Pro is that there are excellent tools applicable to all project life cycles. In addition to providing rich content for the development sector, PMD Pro enables you to be internationally certified in project management. I recently achieved the Level 2 certification.”

Inside four walls: 3 ways to leverage your organization’s assets, network and partnerships for impact

Inside four walls: 3 ways to leverage your organization’s assets, network and partnerships for impact

Project Management

This article has been originally published at Humentum

By Joanne Sonenshine, Founder + CEOConnective Impact

Perform an online search of “purpose at the workplace,” and you’ll find more than 21 million (MILLION!) results. Purpose, impact, social good, mission – these are all of the terms that drive today’s workforce. There’s simply no denying it.

Understanding the complexities of seeking purpose inside one’s four organizational walls is what propelled me to write my second book, Purposeful Profits: Inside Successful Businesses Making a Positive Global Impact. I wanted to better understand how purpose drives change from within. This topic is also one I shared with an audience of about twenty-five participants at last month’s Humentum conference here in DC. The theme? Growing Trust for Greater Impact. What better way is there to institute trust from within than to build on employees’ sense of purpose and mission?

The Added Value of PM4NGOs Certifications

The Added Value of PM4NGOs Certifications

PMD Pro Certification

Born and raised in a developing country and having worked with many non-for-profit organizations, I was always eager to learn more about the uniqueness of the program and project management models used within organizations like NGO’s. Earlier last year, a friend of mine brought my attention to PM4NGOs. I went through their website in details and came across the certifications they offer and found them to be very interesting as they are specific to Program and Project Management for Development Projects.

Program DPro (PgMD Pro) Rebranding

Program DPro (PgMD Pro) Rebranding

PMD Pro, Program Management

Over the past 10 years, PMD Pro has reached 27 thousand professionals, working at 1,250 organizations, in 165 countries. This is the number of professionals that we can acknowledge because they have taken the exam – but we are sure that many more project managers and their teams are applying the PMD Pro best practices. This large community has motivated and helped PM4NGOs and its partners to go beyond the project management level.

PMD Pro has given birth to a family of best practices and methodologies: Program Management, Monitoring and Evaluation, Financial Management, PMD Pro Starter, and supplemental materials like the Theory of Change and the Quick Reading Guides.

Informally, we refer to this group of guides and methodologies as the DPro Family.

DPro Family, Program Management, Project Management, Financial Management

To better align with the growing DPro family of methodologies and Guides, we rebranded our methodology PgMD Pro to Program DPro. Next year, we will also rebrand PMD Pro to become Project DPro (with a permanent reference to the original brand PMD Pro).

Rebranding is about changing perception. It is more commonly described as a change in how you look, sound, and write. This change will allow practitioners to better recognize all current and future DPro practices as member of one family.

Supporting Termanin center for prostheses

Supporting Termanin center for prostheses

Case Studies, Project Management

by Mohammad Mansor Alatrash

Mohammad Mansor is one of the winners of the #StoryContest

Project Name: supporting Termanin center for prostheses at the north west of Syria to provide prostheses to 300 amputated children and women, who got injured because of the ongoing conflict in Syria. 
Duration of the project: 10 Months 
Organization: Polish medical mission (PMM)

A glance before the project fund approval:  A strong advocacy had been done since the beginning of the year 2018 to support this center, also I made many visits to capture the reality and the reliable estimations in time and costs to include them in the project design. Also, to foresee the risks that may confront us.

The project was launched officially the beginning of April/2018 , but to be honest it was through signing the contracts not with a project charter. So, I increased the communications with the staff and other stakeholders to ensure the good understanding for their roles, responsibilities and to get feedback about their concerns and fears.
