Whether you're looking to get ahead in your career or you're wanting to run your own personal project successfully, learning the ins and outs of getting a project off the ground is a skill you will wish you'd learned sooner.
Here's some of the pain you will save yourself simply by having the right skillset:
1. Telling your boss or client that you will need Ksh. XX amount and soon realizing that what you ACTUALLY need is Ksh. XXXXXXXX. You don't want them escorting you off their property, do you?
2. Having a super brilliant idea in your head and realizing that nobody wants what you're offering. You want to know before-hand that you're not being unnecessarily impressed with yourself, don't you?
3. Asking questions in a meeting that make your boss wonder why in the world they hired you in the first place. You want to be able to see the complete picture of a proposed project, speak the language of your boss and make them feel lucky to have you on their team.

1. Principles of Project Management
Where do you start when conceptualizing a project? What should you have in mind? How do you map out your ideas to ensure you're getting a 360-degree view of what you're looking to achieve? Whom should you involve and why? How do you capture the end goal even before you begin?
What do the world's best project managers use as guiding principles to ensure they achieve the goals they set?
2. Design Thinking
Are you even solving the problem you think you're solving? What assumptions are you working with here? Are the people you are solving for even interested in your solution or are you doing it just to impress yourself? Are there any stakeholders you may be ignoring or people you're including that shouldn't get invited to the table?
How do you ensure you're building the right solution for the right people and in response to the right problem?

Fundraising for Projects Masterclass
Fundraising is one of the most important cycles of project management. Think of your project as a car and fundraising a the fuel. How do you go about it? which stakeholders do you need to involve?

How do you brand yourself and your project and develop an endless stream of those who want to support you?
What funding options do you have as a local Kenyan business or project? From crowdfunding to proposals, we'll cover it all.
