WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

In today’s world, managing organisations/projects is about results. Everyone, government Officials, development partners, parliamentarians, vulnerable groups, civil society, poor people, the private sector is demanding programs that help deliver sustainable results. However, in reality, most project environments only see the tip of the iceberg to make tactical decisions in ensuring their projects are on time, within budget and with specifications. Thus the need to develop mechanism for directing projects efforts toward the achievement of verifiable outcomes.

A well thought out governance framework and a performance management strategy is the first step in identifying what metric and analytics are needed to improve the performance. Although many models of measurement are readily available, the biggest challenge lies in quickly accessing the data from multiple sources, massaging the information and then providing the relevant results to the appropriate decision makers. For those who are knowledgeable about data gathering and analysis, the fact remains that the methods and tools for data collection, analysis and use are not static.

The foregoing, calls for a need for training and retraining of designated personnel in the art of data analysis and presentation for better project performance. The training will engage the use of practical and interactive approaches, which will assist relevant personnel to gather, interpret, document and use data to track project performance, improve on current activities and better achieve the overall organisational goals
