SEAMEO BIOTROP Hosts Project Management Workshop to Enhance Program Outcomes and Outputs

SEAMEO BIOTROP conducted a three-day Project Management Seminar and Workshop from 12 – 14 June 2024. The event kicked off with the seminar session on 12 June 2024 in the Jati Room at SEAMEO BIOTROP with 33 participants attending in person. The participants included 19 from SEAMEO BIOTROP, 3 from SEAMEO Qitep in Mathematics, 3 from SEAMOLEC, 2 from SEAMEO CECCEP, 2 from SEAMEO Qitep in Language, 3 from SEAMEO RECFON, and 1 from SEAMEO Qitep in Science. Dr. Jesus C. Fernandez or mostly known as Dr Jess, Deputy Director for the SEAMEO RECFON program, served as the guest speaker.

Dr Jess presentation titled "Making Sense of Project Management Concepts & Principles," was attended by SEAMEO BIOTROP and various SEAMEO Centres in Indonesia. It covered definitions of terms related to project management, the project management cycle, project management approaches and strategies, and project monitoring and evaluation. The seminar concluded with the interactive discussion on "Opportunities and Challenges in Project Implementation at SEAMEO." The activities proceeded smoothly, and all participants were very enthusiastic during the Q&A session on project management.

Wendy Nur Falaq, ICT Coordinator at SEAMEO QITEP in Language, shared his experience: "By participating in the project management seminar at BIOTROP, I realized that the programs and projects to support our Center's initiatives are still not clearly outlined in the FYDP period 2020/2025. The implementation of the project management cycle in activities has also not been structured. The seminar can provide us with inputs in designing the next FYDP. Thank you to the organizing team and speakers."

The workshop on June 13–14 was exclusively for SEAMEO BIOTROP management and staff, focusing on practical applications of the concepts discussed. The workshop aims to produce a reference document for program management at SEAMEO BIOTROP, including instruments for planning and monitoring programs.

Dr. Zulhamsyah Imran, Director of SEAMEO BIOTROP, emphasized the critical importance of effective project management. "Every project leader needs to find ways to achieve the final goals of their programs, not just run the programs but also determine the outputs and outcomes of each activity." (AS)
