Dr. Bina Fernandez
An introduction to project management and design from interdisciplinary and critical perspectives. We begin by understanding the standard project cycle approach to project management: problem identification and analysis, stakeholder analysis, feasibility studies, formulation of proposals and budgets, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Students will be familiarized with programme management tools of Logical Framework Analysis, which will be contrasted with alternative, participatory and ‘Learning Process’ approaches to project design. We then critically examine how different functions require different forms of capacity building within projects. The sensitivity of programmes to gender inequalities and the concerns of disadvantaged groups will also be explored. Students will be introduced to recent critiques of, and debates on, programme management and development practice. Case studies of projects in developing countries and practical exercises will be integral to the syllabus.
