Course - RBPM

Results Based Project Management

An advanced course on the principles, concepts, methods, and tools of Results Based Management applied to development projects. Participants will develop a complete understanding of RBPM necessary for planning, implementation monitoring and reporting based on best practices. The course has a special focus on the application of the results chain, the logical framework, and the performance measurement framework.

Results Based Management is a shift from a focus on inputs and activities to a focus on outputs, outcomes, and impact. Results are the changes that can be described and measured, and it’s the consequence of a cause-effect relationship. They imply that changes in behaviors, by individuals, groups of people, organizations, government bodies or society, have taken place.

This course takes the concepts of RBM and applies it directly to the project management environment, using all the processes and methods that will help development projects achieve the desired results. It’s designed for people that have a responsibility to manage or contribute to the results of a project; especially project managers, team members, and project directors. Participants will develop a complete understanding of the most common principles, processes, and tools that are necessary for the planning, implementation monitoring, and reporting based on best practices in the RBM field. With a special focus on the application of the results chain, the logical framework, and the performance measurement framework.

The online course has a duration of three weeks. Each week, the instructor will provide instructions to help students complete the required assignments. Students will participate in discussions and receive feedback from the course instructor. Students will have access to videos, lectures, tests, and assignments that can be accessed at any time. Students will follow a detailed schedule to complete the assigned activities, participate in discussion forums, and submit their exercises in order to receive a grade. Successful completion of all the course requirements will lead to the award of a Certificate of Completion.
