Project DPro (PMD Pro) Competency 28: Development Environments

Understand and navigate complex development environments.

During this course you will learn about the complex environments in which projects operate as well as strategies for managing successful projects within those environments.

Initially, we will look at a working paper by the Overseas Development Institute.

We will then take a look at two of the practical solutions to navigating complexity. Firstly, the use of design thinking to empower citizens and facilitate their participation and ownership.

The final lesson will discuss mentoring – a collaborative process in which project managers can help each other to navigate complexity in development.
