Program Management for Development Professionals is designed to complement Project DPro/PMD Pro with an emphasis on more complex programs operating multiple projects simultaneously.

  • Articulate the difference between project management and program management
  • Confidently step into the management of an existing program
  • Identify ways to stop being in reactive mode when it comes to issues that arise
  • Have a concrete action plan for improving the management of your program 

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for:

  • Individuals who are Project DPro/PMD Pro certified looking to take their project management skills to the next level.
  • Practitioners working on a program or ‘super’ projects that are: complex, multi-sector, large in size, multiple locations, have multiple funders, multiple grants.

Learning Approach


In-Person Workshop: Humentum’s highly practical workshops always put the learner first. Our expert facilitators will draw on their own vast sector and subject-specific knowledge to ensure our learner experience is as worthwhile and enjoyable as possible. They will share relevant tools, techniques and insights that are immediately transferrable to your own work. You are also actively encouraged to engage in meaningful discussions, hands-on group work, and pose your own specific questions to further enhance your learning.

Online Workshop: Humentum’s self-directed and focused online workshops always put the learner first. You will have the opportunity to connect and engage with peers from around the world in a social network style environment, whilst working through a series of engaging videos, assignments and readings. You will have a dedicated, expert facilitator to guide you on your learning journey, and always ready to answer your specific questions to further enhance your learning.

How does an online workshop work?

The online workshop is open for a set number of weeks, and you can log-in at any time that suits you, and work at your own pace. Once online, you’ll find our platform easy to navigate, with clear guides and instructions.

You’ll need to earn points for completing various tasks (such as watching videos, uploading assignments, and interacting with others). The more tasks you complete, the more points you’ll earn. The quicker you earn these points, the sooner you’ll be able to complete the workshop!

We estimate this workshop requires 4 hours per module (8 modules in total), depending on your pace of learning, and previous experience.
