The Southern Africa Trade Hub provided Project Management Training for the Malawi National Single Window (NSW) project implementation team from March 9-13 at the Malawi Revenue Authority national training facility in Blantyre.
Course topics included Project Management Context, Organizational Influences, and Project Life Cycle, with the training supported by a number of practical assignments. Participants completed group and inpidual projects addressing the key processes of project management in finer detail including Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing.
As the Trade Hub Single Window Road Map progresses, it will be necessary for the government to commit to a multi-agency Single Window Project Management Unit (PMU). It is intended that participants of this training course will staff the PMU, bringing a higher level of expertise and familiarity with best practices to the work.
