Project Management "compact" for Nonprofit Organisations

The importance of professional project management for non-profit organisations (NPOs) is increasing. The existing NPO structures have to be adapted to today's requirements for modern management of organisations, public donors also require professional project management for the awarding and financing of (EU) projects, and last but not least, donors trust those organisations that can convince them through professional and economic project management.

During the course of the seminar, you will learn planning principles and execution methods so your projects can be run more effectively and efficiently at work.

Following the motto "Tell me how your project starts, and I'll tell you how it ends", you’ll discover the language and frameworks for scoping projects, sequencing activities, utilizing resources, and minimising risks and you will be given modern project management tools to master these tasks.
