This course brought all the realities of my job to bear and I am very sure that if I apply my learning from this course to my job, the improvements will most definitely be visible to my  colleagues.

Arthur  Uranta, Nlng  Nigeria


This course allowed me to have a good knowledge of basics of project management, and meet good practice. I must say that some of the concepts I applied  before without knowing the names. I can say also that from the first day of the course I have been putting into practice the knowledge acquired here and feel very encouraged to advise those who have not yet made to do so.

Márcia  Juvane, Uem  Mozambique


This has been an informative course! It is true that an individual may work in a Project Management Organization,  but  not  fully understand  the “consents”  and/or   “purpose” of   the  “business”.    This course  is  beneficial  to  the novice  like myself,  as  well  as  those  persons who may  just need a  “refresher” or   “get back to the basics”  of  the  principles  of  Project Management.    You won’t regret it!

Lisa Lynette  Moss, --  USA


Effective Project Management is a higher level course for those wishing to get practical Project Management knowledge.

It gives me immense pleasure to share my experiences and learning from the course on Fundamentals of Project Management. My expectation from this course was to develop my skills on project management, enhance my knowledge on project management and relate my experience with the theory. At the end of the course, I am very delighted to share that this course helped me to improve my understanding and develop some practical skills of project management. I found a big difference between my practices of working in a project with the theory. The course helped me to minimize the gap between my practices and theory. On the whole, this course helped me in my personal and professional life. 

I heartiest thank the course supervisor for his timely and constructive feedback. I also thank the management of the course for giving me such a prestigious opportunity to learn more about project management. I request you that this will not the end here and I am curious to learn more about effective project management in future.

Moises  Martinez, Rehabilitandohonduras.Com  Honduras


I currently am self-employed after having worked for United Nations Organization. Therefore I decided to develop a project in the fish breeding domain with support of the competencies of my spouse who is Engineer in the said domain. The project called "Fish for All" is initiated for bring a solution to the deficiency of the appropriate protein in the daily nutrition of the population of my regional department caused as consequences of rebellion and after-election crisis happened in my country Cote d'Ivoire. For the success of the said project, I had needed a serious and meaningful training in the project management. For this purpose, I did not find elsewhere better and interesting apart from PM4DEV program. Actually I was not wrong in choosing the Effective Project Management Module with PM4DEV. It would be very wise to be honest in expressing all gratitude and thank to the professional and committed PM4DEV's team who loves what they are doing especially the instructor Rodolfo. I am sure that if I apply with serenity what I learned, "Fish for All" will be a reality and a serious organization which objectives will be attained and remained on track while satisfying the needs and changing positively the nutrition conditions of the beneficiaries.

Zota Alphonse  Gueu, Fish For All  Cote d'Ivoire

This is a very beneficial course. the course content, case study and reading material were quite relevant to my work experience and as a result I had little difficulty relating to the information provided.  There was also very useful and interesting conceptual material that some of which I was not exposed to before.   I learnt quite a lot more in the three week period, than I have in other courses of a much longer duration.  I will recommend it to the HR Dept. of my organization to consider it for inclusion as part of its training program.

Ifeanyichukwu  Ngobili, Fc Plc  Nigeria


What we did with our full effort, that should show the changes on beneficiaries; that should be implemented with the standard norms and procedure; and feeling of proudness should be there by the project donors. Knowledge and skill to accomplish all those elements, PDME course is the best suited course.

Ravi  Shrestha, N/A  Usa


I have acquired so muck knowledge and understanding about project management process. The experience of my tutor and classmates was so enriching and worth emulating. I appreciate being part of this course to a very large extent.

Ibrahim  Turay, Health Poverty Action  Sierra Leone


The course was very interesting and very useful.

I learnt a lot In particular the way to really have control on the nine Project management processes which will determine the success and meet the donor, beneficiaries, and the other stakeholders’ expectations. I understand that, all processes supposed to be interactive, how every element in those processes is very important, how they are cross-linking one another and why Project Manager should to be aware on in order to achieve the real results and reach the project goals. My big and interesting discovery, which I confirmed through my field experiences, is the amount of time (average 80%) the PM spends on communication without realizing.

Another best thing I confirm form this course is how the first project plan could change due to other assumptions, issues, risks, and behaviors register through the implementation and which aren't identify at starting point.

Myriam  Valme Joseph, Enpak  Haiti


PM4DEV's course in Effective Project Management was really just what I needed to boost my skills and efficiency as a PM, and the fact that it's specific to international development projects was key, in that I could start applying some of the strategies immediately. Whether you've been at it for years or are just starting out, I highly recommend this course for anyone whose assignments include Project Management!

Virginia  Williams, New View Media  Usa


Project management is always very entailing and a number of times as a project manager, you find yourself making mistakes or assumptions not because you want to but because of inadequate knowledge. Having gone through this course, I have gained some understanding on the core project management processes which have raised my confidence levels in managing complex projects from the onset to closure. This is really a worthwhile investment.

Ronald  Kubasu, Snv Netherlands Developoment Organization, Kenya  Kenya


-Best way to stimulate student

-I think to improve more we need to have exercises on logframe and WBS or a special course on these topics in order to qualify every student about how to build these 2 elements.

-A part of these 2 chapters I'm really happy about the courses organisation(even if ,for me time was less to read all the chapters before discussion forum)


Lazare  Dje, Médecins Sans Frontière France  Ivory Coast

I enjoyed the pace and the progress of the course as it clearly guides you through the different stages in the design, monitoring, and evaluation of a project week by week.

Emanuele  Pesoli, International School  Italy


It was a good basic introduction to Monitoring and Evaluation.

Nakubyana  Mungomba, Afdb  Zambia


I was managing a project as a second man and thought I was  doing best. After attending this course, I realized that there were a lot of things that I didn't.

The EPM course content is rich and the presentation approach encourages and supports active learning.  The well facilitated discussion forum fosters the kind of experience, open questions and practical tips from student experience that is not found in many on-line courses.  This is not a light version of Project Management - you emerge with foundation, tools and perpectives to put your learning to immediate productive use.  The case study and other materials also reflect the PM for development project intention.  Highly recommended, a great course!

Dickson  Mulli, Mcf  Kenya


Good Course work!

Mary  Mulli, Mcf  Kenya


Project Management was like rocket science to me before I studied this course. Having served in diverse projects as a subject matter expert, my experiences have always been fraught with lots of questions, than answers as to what it takes to manage a successful project. This course has opened all the dark and blind spots in project management which was more or less a mirage to me. Suffice it to say that, I now clearly understand what project management is all about from initiation to completion. I am confident I will be an asset in my upcoming assignment in Botswana. Moreover, the course methodology was quite inclusive and flexible, creating a conducive platform for learning and sharing, notably in the discussion forum. Its international representation is quite impressive as it brings together a pool of professionals who share diverse experiences from different project environments across the globe. Besides, the course instructor was quite exceptional with respect to the measure of help and support we received throughout the course. The overall experience was exceptionally enriching and worth the time. This course is an unequal match with its monetary value in terms of the wealth of knowledge one gets out of it. Raphael Ebot Ayuk, WUSC. Canada

Raphael Ebot  Ayuk, Wusc  Canada


This is the most practical and realistic Project Management Course I have come across.  The assignments and discussions helped demystify key project documents and process and really build student confidence.

Thank you.

Kramo  Jean-Luc, Unocha  Usa


Amazing!!!  This course was so much more than I expected.  It was challenging at times tryng to get everything done within the appointed time BUT, the experience was invaluable.  Mr Siles was an excellent course leader, he is very responsive and timely feedback from him was a guarantee.  The opportunity to interact with other participants in the course and share our experiences was excellent and very beneficial.  The course also provided a wealth of reference material that is PRICELESS as now that the course is ended, you have an excellent cadre of material that you can refer to if and when necessary.  This has been a very rewarding experience and I willl recommend it to anyone who is seriously interested in gaining a better understanding of Project Design, Monitoring & Evaluation.

Louise  Marcelle-Peart, Caribsearch  Jamaica

Last but not least, I would also like to thank the instructor who proved to be very experienced, knowledgeable and responsive.

Maria  Lepeigné-Cobo,   France


I liked this course very much. I'm currently giving the project manager new ideas to improve the M&E strategy in our own project. It has helpful tools to learn more about the M&E phase. The tutor is very helpful and keep the student motivated. If you need to understand more about the project design and to implement the M&E in your project, this course is for you.

Marcela  Suazo, Fhis  Honduras


Within 3 weeks for the on-line course I received a great amount of knowledge in M&E. Before, I had very little understanding of what was M&E and what purpose it served. Now, things became clearer to me and I feel more confident and knowledgeable in this field.

Transfer of knowledge from this course to my daily work is straight forward. The tools are very useful and friendly. The chance of loosing a donor now is very minimal with these skills, and the ability to handle challenging stakeholders is very high. I have proved that "CHANGE IS THE RESULT OF TRUE LEARNING".

The content of the course not only strengthened my knowledge on project managment, but again proved the importance of providing platforms where practioners from the development world can discuss approaches, methodologies, processes from those that are working in the private sector. We certainly can learn a lot from each other. Thank you PM4DEV for providing this exciting opportunity!

Robert  Worthington,   United States


An excellent venue to explore and learn how Project and Program Management are functional within the Development Community.

Robert  Worthington, Usaid  United States


I am very happy i have taken this course and on the right time. My best topic/chapter is Information management, one of the questions on the discussion forum that says "the presentation of late report to donors" presently i have two reports to forward to my superiors and it is a project being implemented by four different NGOs, with three of them are INGOs and mine is NNGO. The staff are not providing me with the correct information and the timing is slow which i have tow a. edit the information, b. race against time. So i found out lots of issues which some are: 1. The staff lack of computer experience, 2. No idea what the report is like, 3. Everyone later complain about their computers etc. So i implemented some strategies by helping them to get quick learning on how to improve their typing skills, help them to know what and how the report is like and provide them with working computers and finally extend the working time which says only the ones that complete certain tasks will have to go home. So lots of them were working against that time frame. For now we are getting the reports done and ready to be forwarded tomorrow to the donors.

Thanks to all PM4Dev team for providing such training.

Chernor Marju  Jalloh, Energy For Opportunity  Sierra Leone


Effective Project Management course is an excellent online course. It needs to insert a lot of effort to cope the course work, reading and study. Those who are willing to attend this course must be available enough time to commit for study during three weeks of time period.

This is actually my first online course to complete.

It was a course, I looked forward for the material to be open so that I can read and go to the discussion board.

The discussion board brough a huge wealth of knowledge, because it included many students who had extensive practical experience.

As per the course content, the videos are great initiators, for one to go in to the more important and more useful reference material which was provides along with each week course.

All in all I enjoyed the course. I hope it will include a practical interactive assignment for students to make it more attractive.

This course was informative and practical in nature. The discussions gave an additional impetus to the course. I was able  to understand some real critical issues that I have not had the opportunity to learn on the job.

John  Morris, International Development Research & Consulting Group  United States


The main reference is excellent and the additional references provided were helpful in the learning process. Classmates shared their experiences thus enriching the learning. I like the forum exchanges and the case was a good and relevant choice. The time was short though for busy people like us in development. Perhaps extending it for another week would have given more time for doing the assignments. overall though, the course has been great!!

The Course is real good,Proffesionsl and i suggest anyone who want to learn Project Design Monitoring and evaluation is your solution.Choose when you want to stard,anything in life start with a knowledge.
