About the course

Successful organizations have a solid grant management program that starts long before any grant is awarded. Grant management includes strategic planning, efficient grant design, program development and effective tracking, and having sufficient resources to smoothly manage the process.

Grants management is a key activity in Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), State Corporations and other Donor funded institutions. Most teams aim to use limited resources optimally and efficiently to achieve maximum impact.
