“A dream come
true” - WVI
Honestly I think that the PMD
Pro training is the most
important training that I have
attended since I joined Plan 7
years ago, because it gave me
the tools and a better
understanding of what is
expected and how to assemble
a Project in a development
organization like Plan
9
It allows us to be more effective in planning,
making decisions and obtaining results. By
implementing the tools we can optimize our
resources, manage ongoing projects well and
look for new opportunities – CIAM Panamá
We are using the Work
Breakdown Structure, RACI
and the whole PMPro Guide
to prepare and write new
projects and obtain financing
from international
organizations AMA Guatemala
