Project DPro Practitioner: a rewarding experience

Project DPro Practitioner: a rewarding experience

Project DPro, Project DPro Certification, Project Management
by Dennis Michael Mehlau I recently had the pleasure of completing my Project DPro Practitioner certification. It was a time-consuming and intense, yet incredibly rewarding experience. The concept of performing different sets of activities to become a practitioner is great and exactly what is needed to make this experience meaningful and sustainable. Combining mini-courses on technical and soft-skill topics with informal learning activities like attending webinars and reading books and articles is state of the art. Adding dedicated activities where you are required to share your knowledge with your community, like writing articles or giving training to your peers, is innovation. I have never seen anything like it, and I am happy to have had the chance to experience these rewarding exercises. The described combination of activities and the recurring ask…

The art of project management

The art of project management

PM4NGOs
This article has been originally published at Elise Stevens' Website.  Art is defined as the expression or application of human creativity or imagination. It’s a much broader definition than simply painting or sculpture, but many project managers will still wonder why a conversation about art belongs in the project management world. According to project management consultant Echo Woolf, thinking about project management as an art form simply means thinking about what moves and motivates people. As she explains to Elise Stevens in this podcast, the art of project management lies in personal development; seeking intentional experiences and constantly refining soft skills in an attempt to perfect the craft.

Training the Humanitarian Actors in the Middle East

Training the Humanitarian Actors in the Middle East

PM4NGOs
This article has been originally published at Bioforce. - After Europe and Africa, why provide open training courses in the Middle East? “The Middle East is undoubtedly the region of the world where the greatest humanitarian challenges are faced. There are many crises there, both on a national and regional level, and they have been growing for several years. Bioforce had to be present in this region with the same objective: to professionalise the frontline actors, to make a range of training courses available to as many people as possible and to ensure that the humanitarian action provided by local and international actors is effective, of high quality and sustainable. As in other regions of the world, humanitarian organisations operating in the region face major difficulties in recruiting qualified humanitarian…

Local action, local power: How it’s working in Myanmar

Local action, local power: How it’s working in Myanmar

PM4NGOs
This article has been originally published at Crown Agents.  For many years it has been clear that driving localisation is the way forward to transform humanitarian response and meet the needs of those most affected by crises. The Grand Bargain, developed at the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit, cemented commitments by getting global buy in to put meaningful localisation at the top of the agenda. Key elements included the allocation of 25% of global humanitarian funding to local humanitarian responders by the end of 2020, the removal of barriers to meaningful partnerships, and the increase in multi-year humanitarian funding. Since then, the international development community has been encouraged to work together with local actors, supporting their role as decision-makers and implementers of solutions impacting their country.
