PMD PRO TRAINING
Recognizing that development organizations and their projects are unique, the PMD Guide is NOT a template to be applied indiscriminately to all projects and by all organizations rather, it provides a contextualized, balanced, comprehensive, and adaptable resource to help increase the efficiency and effectiveness of projects in the development sector.
