I have been involved in training and developing the PMD Pro (Project Management for Development Professionals) since the very first PMD Pro training group in Brazil. I truly believe that we must empower professionals by disseminating project management tools and techniques to the community-based organizations. In the other hand and most importantly, it is from the community that we will learn how and which of these techniques and tools really work”.
