NGOs Development Status and Project Management Need in China

PM4NGOs
By Dr. Michael Zhiqiang Chen, President of HANDA Social Service Development Centre Board member of PM4NGOs What is the current status of NGOs/projects in China? The development trend of China's development and humanitarian sectors is fast but unstable. After the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, especially after the Wenchuan earthquake, China’s NGOs and development and humanitarian sectors have achieved rapid development. However, in recent years, due to the external environment, policies and other reasons, the development of NGOs has slowed down.

NGOs, especially service-oriented ones, will find it difficult to survive and develop if their staff cannot develop and manage projects effectively. The shortage of project management talents…

A global nonprofit organization, International Medical Corps, provides emergency health services to people affected by conflict, disaster, and disease. In addition to disaster-relief efforts, International Medical Corps delivers long-term medical support and training to communities in 31 countries worldwide.

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.
