Course Description

In this course, you will learn the basics of results-based project management. After an introduction to the results framework and its associated performance indicators, you will learn how monitoring systems and evaluations provide a crucial source of evidence for management decision-making.

This project management course is designed to address the growing demand for managers in Africa and around the world, who can use results-based approaches to design, implement and manage an ever growing range of programs and projects. Monitoring and evaluation (key results based management tools) are increasingly called upon within public service, non-governmental sectors and multi-lateral development agencies to help ensure that resources are put to optimum use and that citizens and beneficiaries are assured of receiving the benefits that are committed to them. 

The course has been developed in partnership with CLEAR Anglophone Africa ...

This sounds very exciting. I cant wait to get started. I just graduated in BIS (Information Science) from The University of Pretoria and now studying towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrated Reporting at UP and since i have entered the corporate world, i have been faced with situations that need proper resource allocation with the right set of objectives in place so we can get ahead. With this course i believe there will be an outcome of balance between the two, yay!

The course provide fundamental basics in project monitoring and evaluation a thing lacking much in public sector projects. With the reputation of the University and the credentials of the Instructor it is my hope that the course will prove handy to anyone interested in M&E.

The course content is clearly above fundamentals which i believe will further give insight and in-depth knowledge into the face and real values of project management.It couldn't be more streamline and concise. I do believe the instructor is credible and his reputation precedes him. I want to thank WITS University for this great privilege and being the provider of the edX MOOC.Thank you for this oppurtunity.
