The MONUSCO Project Management & Project Online Training – May 5, 10 and 17, 2022
The Project Management & Project Online Training sessions for MONUSCO took place over the first 3 weeks of May this year. Three training sessions conducted by UNGSC trainers were planned to accommodate everyone’s busy schedule and ensure the best turn-out, as well as give trainees an opportunity to review and practice their project management skills by attending multiple sessions if desired. The training sessions were also recorded.
In the morning, participants attended a detailed presentation on Project Management Framework and Methodology with an extended Q&A session.
Next came a live demo of Microsoft Project Online, featuring a walkthrough of the main tools and features, as well as a demonstration on how to create a Project, including the full Project life-cycle walkthrough from Project opening to the final Project closure. Many trainee questions were discussed and elaborated on, with lively participation and engagement from the attendees.
After the demo came hands-on, guided practice in Project Online. Trainees were asked in advance to prepare a project idea or a real-world project they would like to use as a scenario during the training. In the practice session, they could create this project from scratch and apply the principles and methods from the demonstration, maturing the project, and receiving direct trainer feedback when there were any questions.
The training covered the OICT Project Management Framework, the tailored PRINCE2® Project Management Methodology, the use of Microsoft Project Online, how to create a project, as well as project definition, project types, priorities and scale, project phases, project templates, risks and best practices, the responsibility matrix, as well as OICT Project Management roles and responsibilities.
“Thanks to all participants in the MONUSCO Project Management & Project Online Training. We really enjoyed your involvement in the training, active participation, and shared experiences. It makes a difference and inspires us to continue.” - Joaquin Serrano, PMPU Trainer
