PMP Weekend - Round 2
Time & Location
About the Event
Donor organizations, government and private companies spend billions of dollars on developmental projects annually in Afghanistan. Proper implementation of these projects have been highly important for the successful reconstruction process of Afghanistan – both in public and private sectors – however not all projects being implemented, address the right causes for their initiation; most of these projects are affected by improper needs analysis, requirements gathering, design, implementation and control. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) in a Review Letter to US congress on July 17, 2018 stated that $15.5 billion (29% of $52.7 billion examined) US expenditures on reconstruction efforts for Afghanistan were identified as waste, fraud, abuse or failed projects, between 2008 to 2017. This situation calls for an extensive review of project management practices in Afghanistan, to avoid such high wastage rate in developmental projects.
By managing PMP Weekend seminars we aim to build a community to help build the practices of project management in Afghanistan by sharing success and failure stories of managing projects among practitioners.Event Structure:
PMP Weekend seminars is the first series of our awareness programs on standardization of project management in Afghanistan. The goals of these seminars are to:
- Connect the community of project practitioners together
- Provide the bases for sharing project management knowledge among the practitioners
- Give participants the opportunity to assess and improve their knowledge and skills, and
- Inform our members about career growth opportunities in project management.
Achieving these goals will be the first step toward project management standardization in Afghanistan.
PMP Weekend seminars will address its four main goals in each of its events. We divide each event into separate parts, where participants can identify the process by which they learn and connect. These events will have three parts; storytelling and knowledge sharing; practical activities and games; PMP Chat. Each part is assumed to achieve one or more goals of the event.Who Can Participate?
