  • Hello. My name is Areta Putri Lisia, 18 years old and i'm living at Tangerang city, Indonesia. I'm not working for any organization and unemployed. Not yet, uh. I don't have much experience that can improve some organization.. so.. not yet. I hope i can have more knowledge, information and relation from this course to grow up my 'self'. Sorry if i'm so awkawrd, by the way i'm not really can English Language. So.. nice to meet you guys 😆😳
    Now i'm study at Surya University, major Human Computer Interaction (HCI). I thought this course and my major will be have a good team work hehe. I'm so interested to joining a team, but i'm very afraid if i'll make my team depressed because of me. I dont have any experience about Project Management.
    Well, this is my answer. Thanks~ 😆💕

  • Hai All,

    I'm Dilshad from Sri Lanka , working as a government employee having a supervisory position. while serving as a key position in a local non profit organisation , anyway i would like to sacrifice my time and effort to the world by learning and improving this module. further this would be good opportunity to us to learn and share various practices.

  • Hi there,

    I am Eire Zimmermann, from Curitiba, Brazil.

    I think that taking part in this course will help me refresh the knowledge on project management and probably with rich differente and complementary facets from the instructors and colleagues.

    Due to my crazy professional and personal agenda, I would prefer not entering a team at this time.

    I worked with project management at first for product developement projects in the telecom market. Later on I moved focus to Public Administration including formulating (writting down) projects for raising funds; implementation of PMO; organizational design; and others.

    After some years, I think that one of the main challenges of project management is sort of cultural: facing uncertainty by means of trial/error/learning/prioritization rather than sticking (and getting proud...) of a rigid plan.

    Very glad to be here with you all, thanks for this opportunity!

    Kind regards,

    Eire Zimmermann.

  • Hi, my name is Ana from Caracas, Venezuela. I am studying Social Communication and I work as a Graphic Designer and a Community Manager.

  • Hi. My Name is Onyinoyi Onota, joining from Nigeria. I currently work for Society for Family Health, Abuja (the home office) in Nigeria as an Assistant Manager on the Global Fund New Funding Model grant for key populations. Working at the home office, I am responsible for overseeing state activities. I currently supervise 3 Key Population state specialists, getting reports from them, providing feedback and conducting routine spot checks in the state to ensure that work is done in line with the program implementation plan. I intend to see the course to finish and obtain a certificate at the end. I will use the knowledge I gain from this course to strengthen the capacity of community organization s on program management that my organization currently work with.
    I will not mind joining a team as it will give us room to have healthy discussions which enhance learning. In my current role, I develop and review budgets, I also analyze expenditure to ensure that burn rates are within the budget ceiling and that expenses are done within what is allocable and realistic. I ensure that those I supervise carry out all activities according to the program implementation plan

  • My name is Abdirahman Hassan Yussuf and I am joining Fundamentals of Project Management from Somalia. I am currently working for youth organization as a technical consultant on program and organizational development and management. My goal for this course is to get additional and added value knowledge and skills on program management to deliver the most desired services to the society where the organization is implementing programes on humanitarian and development aspect. The moment I get the expected knowledge and skills of project managment, I will transfer the same acquired knowledge and skills to the personnel of organization throught capacity building workshop on weekly basis, In Sha Allah. Yes, I am very much interested in joing a team for this particular course provided that the team is highly committed and I can benefit from their knowledge and skills on project managment. I am very little experience on project management. Project Managment has a cycle that if well appliled will ensure proper delivery of planned and desired results and will effect positive and intended impact on the target beneficiaries. This include Assesment/idenficiation phase, formulation/appraisal/planning phase, financing phase, implementation and monitoring phase, evaluation and review phase and project closure/Project Phase out. Throughout the different phases of the project management cycle, it is very vital to ensure active participation of the different stakeholders of the project to ensure prject sustainability and community ownership. Failure to consider the roles of the different stakeholders in each and every phase of the project may cause some delay in project execution or put the project process/intervention/activities at halt while in the implementation phase thus pushing the project timeline beyond the planned time in the time schedule. In my own point of view and from my point of experience, monitoring is the second most important component of project management cycle after planning. This is because it provides genuine information to the top-tier management to make informed decisions that will influence other stakeholders of the project. This include immediate adjustment of project plan, termination of the project team and recruiting new and well-experienced project team to overcome serious failures that may scare the most important stakeholders of the project especillay the donors. Thank you very much

    how to handle large projects and deliver them in good time and for less cost. I studied quantity surveying and I would like to apply it when I begin to practice in the construction industry after my youth service and I would also like to practice it in the projects my organization would be handling. I would love to work in a team as its an opportunity to learn better.

    I have worked with a project manager during my internship. The project was the construction of a housing outlet and it was interesting watching my boss handle people, money and equipment to deliver the project in good time to the client.

I have, also, found that dealing with Stakeholders has been a major factor with which I still need to gain a handle on.

    My goal for this course is to become more proficient in project management which i intend to apply in some upcoming community based interventions as well as work with some other community groups in helping to build capacity in this area.

These projects related to working with local and international stakeholders. I have done some basic training related to the not for profits i worked with as well as mentored under some more experienced persons.

  • Hi everyone! I'm Eva Marie from the Philippines. I am in-between jobs now but my work experience is mainly on Service Delivery in the Business Process Outsourcing Industry. I've been with PU since it started and have been enrolling to various courses but was never able to complete any of them due to time management issues. I am joining this course as a refresher because I haven't been doing project management for almost 2 years now. I am keen to work with some of you in groups because that's one skill we need in project management -- the ability to work with other people! I did have some experience in the past on Project Management most of which involved launching programs or lines of business or handling business process improvement projects. However, as I haven't done one in the past year, I will appreciate a review from this course.
