Mrs. Kyaagba observed that development organisations “are facing increasing demands to do more with less, from becoming catalysts of change in communities they serve to deliver projects on time, under budget and in the quality of not only expected but demanded by donors and beneficiaries.”
She explained that to overcome the challenges, development and humanitarian assistance organisations must equip themselves with tools, practices and methodologies that a well established project management can provide, particularly those that have been quite successful in other industries and organisations.
“It is BENGONET’s desire to provide its Executive Directors, Programme Managers and staff with a guide to help them plan, implement, and monitor projects in a more consistent, reliable and predictable manner,” Mrs. Kyaagba said.
Project Manager of Ramberg Child Survival Initiative, Joshua Ashaver, said he is looking forward to better skills to managing his projects and programmes more effectively.
