Project Cycle Management Training

NTRODUCTION


Project Cycle Management PCM is a management tool based on Log-frame approach which is used in project development. The project cycle enables provision of structures that ensures Stake holders are consulted and relevant information is available thus enhancing informed decision making in crucial stages of a project. The cycle is made up of six components including; Programming, Identification, Formulation, Financing, Implementation and Evaluation. This course will equip participants with skills in project design using Logical Framework, Result based management concepts and the use of PCM as project structuring tool.
