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)

Structure of a LogFrame matrix

Søren Holm Pedersen


Eu structural funds

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

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


Eu structural funds

  • 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

  • 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


Eu structural funds

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.

  • Project evaluation

    • What are the main objectives of evaluation?
