In the final article of this series, we will analyze the third category or the Project DPro Practitioner certification: “Giving Back”.
Giving Back is the Project DPro Practitioner category which enables candidates to use their knowledge and expertise to give back to project management in the development and humanitarian sectors.
There are four Giving Back activities to carry out for the purposes of Project DPro Practitioner certification. These are:
- Sharing a tool/process: which you have developed or modified.
- Submit a case study article or video to DPro+, with details of a project you recently completed.
- Free choice activity (2) (helps peers, give a presentation)
Sharing a tool requires candidates to share examples of how they have used project management tools and techniques in real life situations. Candidates can select one of the following tools to share:
- Logframe or Logical Framework
- Problem or Objective Tree
- RACI Matrix
- Risk Register
- Work Breakdown Structure
- MEAL Plan
- Venn Diagram
- Network Diagram
- Project Budget
- Stakeholders Matrix
- Communications Plan
- Project Charter
- Gantt Chart
- Issues Log
- Project Proposal
The Case Study activity allows you to give back to the project management community by giving people the benefit of the learning from your own contextual experiences.
Finally, the two Free Election activities enable candidates to choose from helping their peers or giving a presentation. Helping peers could include assisting people to attain Project DPro Foundation certification, and giving a presentation could be either in the workplace or to another local or community group.
We hope you have enjoyed this series of articles breaking down the categories of Project DPro Practitioner certification, and that they have inspired you to begin your own Practitioner journey.
