One of the challenges faced every day by governments, public organizations, nongovernmental organizations, development agencies, and other stakeholders that promote economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean is transforming proposals into concrete realities that improve society’s well-being and provide results within the time and resources available.

This course introduces concepts and tools that can be applied to project management to generate material changes and meet expected objectives with limited resources. This MOOC strengthens participants’ capacity to manage government and social projects (such as nonprofit and civil society projects) so that they are executed efficiently and effectively.

70% of the students who have taken the course state that they improved their ability to formulate, implement and/or evaluate public policies.

The course is based on the Inter-American Development Bank’s PM4R methodology and the PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition of the PMI®.

Project Management for Results (PM4R) was created by the IDB’s Inter-American Institute for Economic and Social Development (INDES).

The creation of this course was funded by the Institutional Capacity Strengthening Fund (ICSF), thanks to the contribution of the Government of the People’s Republic of China.

PMBOK® Guide is a registered trademark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

This course is “self-paced” so you can enroll at any time, even if the course has been open for a while. You can take it at the time that is most suitable for you inside the enrolment period of the course.
