9 The Basic Concepts of Project Cycle Management
28/03/2017 Module 5: Session 2 The Basic Concepts of Project Cycle Management

10 28/03/2017 Overview The session covers the concepts used in all stages of project cycle starting with the identification of objectives, then design and proceeding to the implementation, and includes monitoring and evaluation of development projects .

11 Learning objectives (session)
28/03/2017 Learning objectives (session) By the end of this session, participants should be able to; Explain the basic concepts of project planning and management Describe project cycle management, its elements and relationships

12 Activity (45 mins) Introduce the session to the participants
28/03/2017 Activity (45 mins) Introduce the session to the participants Brainstorming to list basic concepts used in project cycle management. Write down the meaning of the different concepts used in project planning and management

13 28/03/2017 What is a project? The difinition of the term project should include the following terms/words Planned undertaking Set of interrelated and coordinated activities Budget Time Specific objectives

14 28/03/2017 What is a project? … A project may be defined as a set of activities, which aim at achieving specific objectives within a stipulated period of time and budget.

15 28/03/2017 The Project Cycle A continuous process made up of separate and complementary stages (phases) each with its own characteristics and each setting a ground for the next one.

16 28/03/2017 The project cycle

17 Project Cycle Management
28/03/2017 Project Cycle Management The process of planning and managing projects, programmes and organizations Involves a set of planning tools that feed into the logical framework All aspects of the project cycle are considered to ensure that any changes are included in the project design

18 What is a log Frame? An overview of a project or programme plan
28/03/2017 What is a log Frame? An overview of a project or programme plan A tool used to help strengthen project design, implementation and evaluation A table of 4 rows and 4 columns defining objectives, outputs, indicators, means of verification, risks and assumptions

19 28/03/2017 The Log Frame

20 What shows that a project has begun ?
28/03/2017 What shows that a project has begun ? When somebody conceives the idea When a Government official makes a statement about it. When data is collected about the area/community needs/problems. When one identifies a problem

21 Stages/ Phases of the Project Cycle
28/03/2017 Stages/ Phases of the Project Cycle Idea conception and project identification Project write up/formulation/preparation/ design Project presentation, appraisal, selection, negotiation, approval Project implementation and management Project monitoring and supervision Project evaluation

22 What is Project Identification?
28/03/2017 What is Project Identification? Involves needs assessment - collecting, processing and analyzing data on problems/needs of communities The data/ information provides a basis for the next or second stage of the project cycle.

23 Project Identification ….
28/03/2017 Project Identification …. Review of secondary data Look at books, survey reports/ research papers, publications, media reports, internet e.t.c. Are the facts accurate? Are the facts supported by evidenece? Is the information up-to-date? Example: the 2004 NSDS report, the 2002 census report, the district statistical abstracts

24 Project Identification …
28/03/2017 Project Identification … Collecting and analyzing primary information Interviews Community mapping Focus Group Discussions Other methods

25 Project Preparation / Design
28/03/2017 Project Preparation / Design Involves analyzing the information from the identification stage in detail to formulate a project document. Stakeholders Analysis Research Problem Analysis Log Frameworks The economic, financial, social, ecological are analysed and the results documented. These dimensions are summarized into a project write up or proposal.

26 28/03/2017 Project Appraisal This is the assessment or in depth analysis or examination of all the aspects of the project technical, financial, community participation, socio-economic benefits, organization and management, environmental impact, political risks, project sustainability and replicability.

27 Project Implementation
28/03/2017 Project Implementation This stage involves transforming the project proposal into the actual project or reality. Putting into practice the plans that had earlier on been appraised following the already laid down time table or work plan. It leads to the realization of project outputs and immediate objectives.

28 Project Monitoring 28/03/2017 It is a continuous assessment or review and surveillance by the project management at every level of the hierarchy of the implementation of the project It is aimed at tracking the progress of the project by ensuring that input and material deliveries, work schedules, targeted outputs and other required actions are proceeding according to plan. It is “Keeping track of events in relation to work plan and targets.

29 Basis for Monitoring Periodic reports
28/03/2017 Basis for Monitoring Periodic reports Regular project management and staff meetings Observations Field visits and inspection.

30 28/03/2017 Project Evaluation This is a process of determining systematically and objectively the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and impact of the project in light of its objectives. The comprehensive review, assessment and critical analysis not only of the project results, but also the initial assumptions underlying the project elements including the relevance of the problem statement.

31 Overview of Statistics in Project Cycle Management
28/03/2017 Module 5: Session 3 Overview of Statistics in Project Cycle Management

32 What does the Session Cover?
28/03/2017 What does the Session Cover? The Session covers: An overview of the use of statistics in each of the phases of the project cycle Learning Objectives (Session) Explain the use of statistics in project cycle management

33 Relevance of statistics to planning
28/03/2017 Relevance of statistics to planning What data is needed to: Prepare a plan or project? Appraise a plan or project? Implement a plan or project? Monitoring a plan or project? Evaluate a plan or project? Data and statistics are required!!

34 Use of Statistics in project cycle management
28/03/2017 Use of Statistics in project cycle management Statistics/ data is used in the different stages. In this session we shall consider: Project Identification Project Design Project Implementation
