The E-training Results-oriented Management (ROM) is coming out in 2018. Pre-order is available here & now!

Have a sneak peek into the wrap-up topic of the course – the dialogue between the lecturers Franck Sottou and Colm Dunne.

Europe | ESIF | Monitoring | Horizon2020 | ENI | Subsidy| IPA | EU2020 | Impact | Evaluation | EU funds | Black box of Change | Cohesion | ESF | Programming | ERDF | EAFRD | Results | Outputs | Management | Outcomes | Project | Results chain | Other factors | Operations | Sector Results | Theory of Change | Contribution analysis


This training consists of 10 lessons devoted to concrete aspects of the results-oriented management. Basic knowledge about EU funds is recommended, but the training can address the needs of beginners, as well as more more advanced/experienced managers. Apart from the Introduction (Lesson 1) and the Wrap-up (Lessons 10), all core lessons (2-9) entail 2 topics and a short quiz (comprehension check, not graded). The topics consist of videos, exercises, reading documents and other forms of support. The training ends with a test which can bring you a certificate of qualification (for scoring at least 60%). In terms of workload, this e-training is equivalent to a 2-day “classic” face-to-face training. It is accessible online, anytime, anyplace at your convenience. Upon accessing the training you have got 2 months to complete it.

You can pre-order it either in individual capacity or for a group (technical assistance support).
