Whether you’re applying for funding or using your own funds, contin-uing an existing project or starting a new one you want to do your best to ensure your project will be successful. You want to make sure that it meets a need and is deliverable; you want to be confident that you are making best use of your limited resources and are offer-ing a value for money service.
Project development is more than merely coming up with an idea for a project. It starts with setting objectives and progresses through de-veloping an evidence base, generating and selecting project ideas, project delivery planning, establishing processes for monitoring per-formance and risk management.
This course is designed to give participants the basic tools to be able to develop projects they can have confidence in.
1. Introduction to ‘What is a project’?
2. Developing project objectives – drivers, SMART targets, out-comes
3. Understanding need – what is it and where’s the evidence
4. Generating project ideas and selecting ‘preferred projects’ – Brainstorming, SWOT and other techniques
5. Project delivery planning – project planning charts, matching resources to project delivery
6. Monitoring and review – performance indicators, gathering and using monitoring information
7. Risk analysis – what could go wrong, how do you prevent and what do you do if it does go wrong
