A person with a lightbulb over their headHow will I benefit from this course?

The identification and definition stage of the project lifecycle can be challenging and messy for organisations and project teams. In many cases the timeline from assessing humanitarian needs to designing a project logic and receiving donor funding is incredibly short and puts pressure on the team, leaving little room for mistakes.

This module aims to map out the key steps and technical skills needed in the project identification and definition phase of a humanitarian project. It focusses specifically on the role of the Project Manager, throughout this project stage.
