Managing Our Projects
We make use of a Projects Management Methodology, using a project cycle with five basic components:
- Identification – identifying the need for a project by collecting and
analysinginformation, researching and exploring the context ofthe needs, as well as existing resources and other initiatives for intervention.
- Design and/or redesign – The scope of work and appropriate
strategies,are determined to address identified issues. Considering the beneficiaries’ needs, rights and priorities, the design process begins, and available resources are allocated. Project milestones,expected results, and completion dates are set.
- Delivery – The execution of the various tasks and delivery of
- Monitoring – Information is routinely collected to make sure that resources have been used correctly, tasks have been executed, and delivery of project has occurred. Monitoring supports accountability and tracks performance so as not to defer from
originaldesign of projectand desired outcome.
- Evaluation – Assessment of what is working and what is not working in the programs and project, as well as what challenges are emerging. If changes need to be made to the project, or aspects of it, then the cycle begins again by identifying and assessing needs and redesigning.
