Project Management

A distinction can be made between:

  • Skills development (individuals)
  • Organization Development (entities)
  • Community development (e.g. public engagement)

Making this distinction helps to explain how a "project management" role emerges for C4L.

Skills Development

C4L's accreditation as a training provider is only for End User Computing.  Beyond that, C4L works in close collaboration with other training providers, essentially outsourcing. 

It happens this way - in a trilateral configuration.  C4L is appointed as the Client's project manager, then it appoints other accredited training providers to train the Learners beyond the computer skills involved.

Organization Development

A good example of Leadership training is when we work with the Boards of nonprofits and cooperatives. We work with a functioning team, and the results strengthen an organization or entity.  Key issues like Vision and Strategy cannot be formulated by individuals, they are "corporate" functions.  Usually such training is "non-accredited" because it is not delivered to one individual.

As a Project Manager, C4L can assume certain roles such as OD and computer skills training, while outsourcing the rest to partner training providers.

Community Development

In this way, C4L remains anchored in a community development role which is typical of nonprofits working mainly in development.  This devolves much of the training to local providers with their specialisms.

Project management is a kind of coordination role, steering the diverse actors and stakeholders and providing monitoring, reporting and evaluation. 

This is C4L's "natural habitat".  We sometimes call it public-private partnership because the Client or Donor may be from the public sector and training providers can be from either public or private sector.  C4L is from the voluntary nonprofit sector often called Civil Society.  In such Joint venture, it is important to agree who is the Lead Agency and that is the "project management" role that C4L frequently assumes.
