The success of a programme or project is determined not just by financial returns but also by its socio-economic benefits and welfare impacts. In light of this, it is imperative that development programmes and projects be properly planned, conscientiously executed and monitored. However, projects are often designed as technical interventions without adequate institutional setup and without due regard to the macroeconomic and political environments. Consequently, project managers, advisers and team leaders frequently face a wide range of management problems. Given the rapid rate at which projects have been abandoned in the recent past, it is imperative that a new management orientation be evolved. This should reduce wastage and ensure economy, effectiveness and efficiency in the use of resources through improved and successful project planning and management. This workshop is designed to broaden and improve the managerial knowledge, skills and attitudes of participants with a view to raising the rate of project success in Nigeria.
