Prepared and presented by Tuğçe Cankara Bahadır and Zeynep Atay, the video series titled "Project Preparation and Project Management for Civil Society Organizations" provides basic information on almost all issues that are important in the project management of a CSO.
Basic Concepts in Project Planning
In the first video of this training series, we focused on the basic concepts of project planning.
What is the project? Why do we do projects? Why do we need to think focused on change? What are the main criteria that distinguish the project from our routine work? Stakeholder, risk, assumption, etc. that we often use in the project world. What do the terms mean? What are the stages of the project cycle? We talked about the answers to these basic questions.
Logical Framework Approach and Result-Oriented Management in Project Planning and Management
In this second video of this training series, we talked about the "logic" of the log frame approach, which is still the most valid method in project planning. We looked at what the causality relationship in the logical framework approach means through a practical example.
Then, we discussed the result-oriented management approach, which has come to the fore in project planning, management, monitoring, and evaluation, especially in recent years. What is the results chain? How to name different levels of change in the chain of results? What do terms such as output, result, effect mean? What are indicators of success or signs of change? We sought answers to these critical questions by looking at examples.
