Program, Project or Mission Performance Support Workshop

Background

This workshop strengthens program/project implementation for overall effectiveness of your program or mission. It provides support for adjusting certain elements and strategies required to realize the full potential of the program/project. Existing mechanisms need to be reviewed and optimized to better address the changing context of the program/project. The program or project’s overall effectiveness will be enhanced, and its end results consequently strengthened.

Goals

  • Strengthen the performance and results of an existing program/project
  • Through dialogue, address the issues or impediments to effective collaboration and achieving sustainable results
  • Strengthen the knowledge base for effective program/project delivery
  • Renew trust, relationships, shared commitment and common ground and
  • Identify lessons learned since the beginning of the program/project.

Who is this for?

Programs, projects, missions, or events involving intercultural and multi-stakeholder collaboration.

When and where?

Workshops may be held at any time during an international collaboration. Workshops must bring together the partners involved and will be held where the greatest number of key players can meet, either in Canada or, more often, abroad.

Participant comments

"The workshop helped clarify and modify strategies for improved project implementation. […] By the end, it seemed everyone had committed (…) to this, which meant that we all left changed. The exchange of ideas that took place will give a needed boost for the remaining stages of the project."

“Participatory approach is very important in development of PMF and result based reports. Constructive dialogue encourages others to perform better.”

“[I learned] participatory co-generation of a result based PMF is crucial. How to develop a good indicator. How to develop a good performance story.”

“Facilitation process [engaging, co-generative]. Linking theory and practice. Practical exercises. Participation of the Donors.”
