The workshop on “Project Management for Heritage Managers” took place from 09 to 11 December 2020.
11 heritage managers from Africa (Rwanda, Gambia, Kenya) and Europe (Finland, Greece, UK) have been trained in project management techniques for running a successful project from inception, through the planning and implementation phases to closure. Through exercises and group work participants understood how to make sure they get their project completed on time, to the quality desired, and within budget, by proper planning and tight control. By the end of this training participants have learnt all the skills necessary to become a well-organized project manager.
The workshop was conducted by Tim Healing, who has over thirty years’ experience working as a project manager and has a professional background in project management, community and NGO development. He specializes in the coordination and support of cultural heritage and community based social action projects in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asian regions.
