Project Management Monitoring and Evaluation with MS Projects Course

Event: Project Management Monitoring and Evaluation with MS Projects Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya.

Event Date: 21st – 25th May 2018.



There is increasing demand from multilateral agencies, funding bodies as well as boards of private companies for a strong demonstration that projects are being monitored and evaluated effectively.
Effective project monitoring allows a project team to make appropriate decisions on a day-to-day basis and ensures that projects are carried out as planned and modified when necessary.
Successful programs and projects begin with a pre-planned series of activities and events. However, things rarely work out exactly as planned. Managers must therefore periodically monitor selected indicators and measure performance during implementation so they can make timely adjustments where necessary, as well as subsequently determine the extent to which the program or project achieved its objectives.
