Most of the focus in relief and development planning is on the goal and the means to achieve that goal. While this is valuable and crucial, it is the ‘Why?’ of the project that will determine the outcome of the project. Leaders who have the correct approach to this question will promote each project’s success and ultimately contribute to the goal of their organization.

This Course will aid managers and leaders working in development and relief fields to effectively plan and budget for their projects. The principles imparted in this comprehensive program will facilitate improvements in performance and the overall success of projects.


This Course will provide you with:

  • Known rural development biases
  • Approaches to actively involve stakeholders
  • Problem Tree principles – identify and deal with needs and problems in social development projects
  • Objective Tree principles – set SMART goals
  • The definition and practical use of LFA
  • The contribution of PCM in the goal-setting
