Project management - NGOs

Home / Project management - NGOs

NGOs are organizations be it large or small, work towards the betterment of the society. To name a few causes there is the eradication of poverty, managing diseases, hunger issues, help during natural calamities and war, delivering education, providing shelter not just to humans but to animals as well. With Project Management for NGOs these projects which require integration of manpower globally along with managing the funds can be dealt systematically.

The most essential requirement for an NGO is to clearly define the project scope to ensure that only the work which is associated with the project is carried out within the budget. NGOs through project management can maximize their resources, increase flexibility among the team members, and maintain transparency among the diverse stakeholders.

Project management provides an enormous advantage to the NGOs as there is enhanced professionalism and good quality project delivery with effective communication and risk mitigation. Through PMP training an NGO project manager will understand that the success of any project depends on schedule, budget, performance, and acceptance. Acceptance is a long-term goal to make the project sustainable.
