Overview: Expert advice was offered for working-level officials of CSOs. A total of 15 organizations received advice on four themes through joint counseling sessions. Issues that occurred after the project commenced were discussed with experts on development and cooperation. The process of identifying resolutions for the issues offered a chance to review the project and the participants themselves for more effective project implementation.
Details: Based on the pre-demand survey of CSO officials, education, health-care, regional development, cooperatives and social corporations were selected as themes. Expert advice was offered through joint sessions to make the most of the learning effects and efficiency.
Workshop topics: Education, local community development, health-care, social enterprises and cooperatives
Overview: Middle managers working at headquarters of CSOs that take part in international development cooperation were offered opportunities to discuss themes focusing on monitoring, evaluation and local organizational management. A total of 21 middle managers with experience of three years or more in the field were selected to participate in training and discussion to identify agenda items that would bring qualitative change to project implementation. The end result was to help build an enabling environment and a core group that can take the lead in projects.
Details: Not only are there very few middle managers who have extensive experience in international development cooperation CSO's, but managers also suffer from work overload and a lack of opportunities to discuss results management with a focus on organizational management on sites, monitoring and evaluation. The sessions offered a chance to foster middle managers as core personnel in future development cooperation projects through training and discussion. The workshops diagnosed practical problems faced by development cooperation CSOs and headquarters in regards to organizational management, and monitoring and evaluation, and presented measures to strengthen organizational capabilities. For each theme, presentations, discussions, small group discussions and free discussion took place, involving in-depth analysis and joint activities. In particular, all participants were asked to take of the role of mediator in assigned discussions or small group discussions for a workshop based on two-way communication, to promote better understanding and networking.
