It’s time to find a project management mentor!

Development Sector, Project Management, Training, Webinar

It’s time to find a project management mentor! Project Managers Against Poverty (PMAP) runs an e-mentoring scheme for project managers who work in international development and the third sector. The scheme enables mentors and mentees to register and manage their profiles, to securely establish and conduct successful mentoring relationships. Mentees are able to choose their mentors. It enables mentees to learn from another person’s vision, experience, and learning, and get professional guidance on the challenges they encounter. We have 38 volunteer mentors registered from 18 countries, and 46 mentees registered from 25 countries. To read about the benefits of the PMAP scheme and experiences of mentees see the Association for Project Management (APM) blog here. The service is provided at no cost to users.

To find out more please join us at a webinar either on Tuesday 25th April and Friday 28th April at 13:00 UTC (that’s 14:00 GMT) lasting 40 minutes. We will discuss what mentoring is about and why it is important, and how to find a project management mentor through our website. The session will be fully interactive with the opportunity to ask lots of questions.

Register here for the webinar and confirm which date you are attending. I will then send you the webinar link. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns please contact me at peter@pmap.email. I look forward to meeting with you.

Maintaining Operational Excellence in Changing Times

Maintaining Operational Excellence in Changing Times

Project Management

After a year of significant and unexpected changes in the overall landscape for international NGOs and their partners, 2016 ends on a note of uncertainty. While humanitarian, political, and funding challenges rightly garner attention, for the InsideNGO community, these challenges also bring into focus the key questions on our shared agenda: How do we maximize the value of essential operational capabilities to support and sustain our programs? How can we do this with perhaps fewer, or different, resources? How do we maintain hard-won gains in operational excellence?

Designing eLearning Courses with Localization in Mind

Designing eLearning Courses with Localization in Mind

PM4NGOs, Tools

A guest post by Ingenuiti, a LINGOs partner.

Do you design or create training content or eLearning courses for an organization that operates globally? If you think your content will reach a global audience, you should consider integrating localization as part of your development process. Training has its greatest impact when it is provided in the learner’s native language. If you are a writer or instructional designer and have never considered localization in the planning and creation phase of content development, while it might seem daunting at first, this once dreaded task can be simplified with proper preparation and strategy.
To learn more about best practices and processes for developing English content with localization in mind, we’ve organized below four areas of focus. These tips can help create a greater impact for your global learners, lower costs, and allow for more effective and efficient uses of your time and resources.

Writing

Being tasked to write with localization in mind is like replacing a game of dodgeball with a game of chess. It might not be as fun to play, but it has its own unique rewards and challenges. Meticulous thought and calculated strategy for the win almost always trump pegging someone with a ball. It’s sometimes not as glamorous as developing content for a strictly English-speaking audience, and you have to take care to avoid the many potential pitfalls of the writing process. For example: Continue reading “Designing eLearning Courses with Localization in Mind”
