The PMD Pro1 is the first of the Project Management in Development Professional Certification.
Contextualized for the international development sector, PMD Pro1 includes content that provides successful participants with sufficient project management knowledge to work as an informed member of a project team in the sector

The PMD Pro1 qualification is also a pre-requisite for the PMD Pro2 qualification.

As a Project manager, developing concise and unambiguous project objectives (or statements of your project’s desired results) increases the chances that you’ll successfully accomplish them. Follow these pointers to ensure your project objectives are crystal clear:

    • Focus on outcomes rather than activities. (For example, “produce a final, approved report” is preferable to “read and review draft report.”)
    • Make sure your objectives are SMART (specific, measurable, aggressive, realistic, and time-sensitive).
    • Make sure every objective has at least one measure and every measure has at least one performance target. (For example, if the narrative statement of your objective is “to develop a new product,” one measure would be “target completion date” and the performance target for that measure would be “August 15, 20__.”)
    • Understand the context and content of projects in the development sector
    • Know the principles, phases and disciplines of project management in the development sector context.
    • Use clear language — no technical jargon or acronyms.
    • Understand the relationship between principles, phases and disciplines within the development sector context.
    • Understand the importance of adapting the PMD Pro to the context of the project.
