The Project Management for Results (PM4R) methodology, developed by IDB's Inter-American Institute for Economic and Social Development (INDES), serves as a conceptual base for this course. PM4R's contents are based on A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013.

Me parece que el el curso, esta muy bien enfocado con temas muy útiles y acordes para la gestión de recurso a través de proyectos, dirigido al mejoramiento de la calidad de vida de los pobladores de países latinoamericanos y en especial de mi país Colombia, que se prepara para la etapa del posconflicto del proceso de paz que se lleva a cabo, así preparándonos para la inversión de recursos a través de proyectos que mejoren la calidad de vida de esta población que a sido victima por mas de 50 años por el conflicto armado interno de nuestro país; los instructores me párese que cuentan con el perfil y la experiencia idónea, para que transmitan sus conocimiento a nosotros como aprendices en este interesante curso; de parte del proveedor del curso, me parece excelente que se vinculen en la preparación de personal para la formulación y gestión de proyecto, por que de ello depende el éxito de los mismos.

I found this course very useful with a well structured study guide and good points made in the lectures. To make use of the course you need to have some prior knowledge of project management or at least of the techniques used. For instance the course offers only an outlook of network programming. Unfortunately I enrolled late and did not manage to get to the end of the course in time to obtain a certificate. I look forward to a a future edition of this course and will enroll again, from the start of the coruse! I rec
