Management is far too important to be left only to the managers
Management training, as described in this site, has a special methodology. It is something that goes beyond traditional training, and it is something which directly contributes to an increase in capacity, strength, or empowerment of groups, organizations or communities.
You will find some overlap between this module and the others. The community mobilization intervention, for example, is closely integrated with the management training intervention (applied to communities), so the boundaries between the two are not easy to define.
Here are some of the documents in this module. The Four Key Questions, lists the four questions that lie at the core of management training. Together, they and the answers to each, form a logical argument, which lies at the root of project design and all planning related to management.
Management Training is a workshop handout for participants that again lists the four questions, and some other principles of management decision making. See also Management Training, from chapter Three of "Training for Strength," which is the training curriculum of the community management programme.
Management Training, Notes for the Trainer, is aimed at facilitators or trainers and explains how to use the material and present the principles of management training, Management Training Strategy Sketch, is an overview of the CMP strategy, and shows how management training is one of the three main thrusts of the methodology designed to empower low income communities.
The Management Training Strategy Explicated, is an expansion of the sketch, but goes into more detail for each of the elements in the strategy. Organizing by Training, describes how training, in this programme, goes beyond the usual assumption of being only the transfer of sills, and can be used for institutional restructuring (reorganizing) a group, organization or community to be more effective and have more capacity.
