 Inhalt (Content):
Development programmes and projects are the main forms of intervention of national and international development efforts. However ambitious these efforts may be, they cannot tackle and solve all problems that exist in a country or region. Hence choices need to be made to ensure that a development programme or project is clearly targeted and as effective as possible. This requires a sound analytical basis, clear and realistic objectives, a careful choice among alternative options, and the efficient implementation of a coherent set of actions. Throughout this process an open dialogue among all stakeholders needs to be fostered and true local ownership created in order to improve the quality of projects and programmes - and hence the overall relevance, feasibility and sustainability of development cooperation.

The course aims to familiarise the students with the most important planning and management techniques currently in use in development organisations. Besides lectures the course puts great emphasis on group exercises in which the newly learnt methods are practiced. This will at the same time enable the students to critically reflect and assess the usefulness as well as the shortcomings of these methods.

The course is structured into three phases, preparing the students for the three one-week SPRING workshops. The first phase covers analytical methods. For analysing complex development problems and the different perceptions of stakeholders both logical and participatory methods are introduced. The second phase of the course covers planning methods. They assist in the difficult process of formulating objectives, defining and assessing alternative projects and finally selecting and designing in detail one project. The third phase of the course deals with implementation methods. Among others they help in analysing and upgrading the capacity of the implementing organisation, defining implementation schedules, clarifying responsibilities as well as setting up monitoring and evaluation procedures.

In the end students should have both hands-on experience and a critical understanding of the analysis, planning and implementation methods used for designing change processes, monitoring progress and evaluating impact.
