Project Design

  • What is Project Design? It’s the phase where you:
  • Outline project background and overall objectives
  • Discuss/justify the project internally and with key stakeholders
  • Identify the key policy documents (regulations/programmes)
  • Define project purpose and results of the project
  • Define the project outputs, inputs and the assumptions
  • Make a preliminary estimate of project cost and funding
  • Summarize project description (e.g. using LogFrame)

Project Design - LogFrame

LogFrame matrix definitions

  • Intervention Logic
  • Indicators of Achievement: Important definitions/targets for objectives that are objectively verifiable
  • Sources of Verification: How and where to check achievements
  • Assumptions and Risks: Things taken for granted – What could happen?

Søren Holm Pedersen

slide12

Project Design - LogFrame

  • Overall objective: Overall development orientation of the policy/ programme which the project is a part of and contributes to
  • Project purpose: Specific objective to be achieved by addressing the core problem of the sector/area concerned
  • Results: The ”products” of activities undertaken, the combination of which achieve the project purpose
  • Activities: Actions to be carried out or services provided
  • Means: Inputs required to produce results
  • Costs: Budgets and financing

Søren Holm Pedersen

slide13

Development

  • Review the project internally and with stakeholders
  • Comprehensive Project Proposal
  • Finalising the budget
  • Finalising the time and activity plan.
  • What are the minimum requirements of such a plan?
  • Develop a detailed time and activity plan.

Søren Holm Pedersen

slide14

Appraisal

  • Resources, organisation and stakeholders
  • How will you ensure, that staff (internally/externally) is available to the extend needed and their qualifications appropriate?
  • How will you ensure the commitment of top management in your own organisation?
  • You should ensure, that stakeholder’s interests are finally met and commitment obtained. What method(s) could be used here?

Søren Holm Pedersen

slide15

Negotiations and decisions – organisation & implementation

  • Discuss, how the project organisation could be made – who will be responsible for carrying out which tasks and how will contacts/communication be organised.
  • Elaborate a project organisation diagram.
  • Describe the skills/qualifications that “your ideal project manager” should have.
  • Describe the skills/qualifications that the members of “your ideal project staff” should have.

slide16

Project evaluation

    • What are the main objectives of evaluation?
