Facilitation Skills and Moderation

Facilitation, whether face to face or online, is a working method which plays an increasingly important role in professional everyday life. In facilitated processes the factual and the emotional relationship level are equally important. A professional facilitator must be able to shape both levels simultaneously and evenly to create a constructive and open-minded atmosphere in working groups. The focus of this training course is on the „how“ - giving the participants concrete suggestions for practical use.

Management of Development Projects

By the end of the course participants will have a good knowledge of the principles of project management in development projects. They will have practised its principal mechanisms and be in a position to apply them.
