Project Management

WHMO has tough and highly-regarded project management methodologies. Our experience with project management has allowed us to develop an approach that is thorough and proactive, facilitating project implementation by:

  • Focusing on communications. Our project team supports effective communication with all stakeholders encouraging better coordination during program implementation;
  • Dealing with issues quickly. Any misunderstandings about respective roles in the program are addressed immediately, with WHMO taking responsibility and communicating agreed-upon roles to all concerned;
  • Emphasizing quality human resources. This is fundamental to project success. We ensure that the best people are used for each role;
  • Promoting a sense of pride in our teams. We believe in building genuine teams, rather than groups of individuals. In doing so, we consider the skills, strengths, and areas for development of each individual member, and ensure that they are complementary;


  • Effective program management arrangements are essential to ensuring a focused and coordinated delivery of inputs and clear and effective outputs.
  • Clearly understood roles, responsibilities and reporting arrangements among all team members;
  • Effective co-ordination of related tasks on different workstreams;
  • Clear program objectives, milestones, and deliverables, set within the context of a realistic work plan;
  • Effective monitoring mechanisms, and a mechanism for flagging problems, so that they can then be reported and resolved;
