Course Description

Good project design skills can be learned. We promise.

It seems simple enough. Start with a good idea and everything else will fall into place. Unfortunately, it rarely works that way.

In this virtual, highly interactive workshop, using your idea, you will learn how to design a project that reaches the right audience, has the intended impact, and achieves measurable results. You'll sharpen your information gathering, project planning, and evaluation skills, and walk away with the ability and confidence to build in the accountability and strategic thinking needed to achieve project success.

While you are encouraged to attend with your project team members, attending as an individual is just as valuable.

You will learn how to:

  • Assess your understanding of the needs driving the project team actions and plans
  • Apply a systems approach to logically connect project resources, actions, and outcomes
  • Create functional logic models for immediate use in your projects
  • Generate performance measures for project reporting and evaluation
  • Link project design to agency and organization missions, strategic plans, and established program niches
  • Prepare for a meaningful evaluation of your project or program

Continuing Education Credits

  • Certified Floodplain Managers will receive 8 hours for professional certifications
