It will also equip participants with the varied skill set necessary to oversee complex projects, such as risk management, effective budgeting, quality control and stakeholder management.

The tools and techniques covered are designed so that they can be adapted to the needs and specifications of different organisations and/or projects making them suitable for small-scale improvement projects or national capacity building programmes.
