International cooperation in development project management requires a common understanding of planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM E). Concepts such as "PCM – Project Cycle Management" and "Managing for Development Results" are explored. As a fundamental component of the course we examine the Logical Framework Approach as development instrument. One of the major challenges of Project Management is interdisciplinary teamwork. The course helps participants to become familiar with work in interdisciplinary multicultural groups and the application of Project Management instruments and tools.9:00 - 17:00 (30) Veranstalter: Seminar für Ländliche Entwicklung (SLE) Themen:Sonstiges,WirtschaftFormat:Workshop
