LINGOs, a non-profit organization, is the international NGO sector’s largest membership-based consortium dedicated solely to training and capacity building. It has a membership of over 80 international humanitarian relief, development, conservation and social justice organizations.
LINGOs has been a leader in curating, developing, and disseminating appropriate learning and development tools, technology and content to over 50,000 NGO staff in developing countries since 2004.
LINGOs began to work with a group of international NGOs in 2007 to collectively define agreed upon principles and best practices in project management in the development sector. That early group received some funding from PMIEF and included Catholic Relief Services, Habitat for Humanity, World Vision, Save the Children, Oxfam and others as well as representatives from The Project Management Institute. The work of that group laid out a framework for the Project Management in Development curriculum which was developed and field tested by over 200 practitioners from 15 organizations in 20 countries.
With feedback from that initial testing and additional funding from APMG, the PMD Pro Guide and PMD Pro Certification scheme were developed and launched in 2010 in Johannesburg and Zambia. Since that launch over 10,000 individuals in over 70 countries have participated in the PMD Pro certification.
In 2011, the ownership of the certification and Guide to PMD Pro were turned over to a new organization PM4NGOs to maintain and expand the standard.
At that time, LINGOs began to offer training and consulting services to organizations and individuals interested in adopting PMD Pro tools and techniques.
Improving Access to PMDPro
LINGOs also began developing online training modules that could be accessed at no cost by anyone interested in developing their project management capabilities. Find out more here.
In order to more rapidly spread the PMD Pro methodology, LINGOs has trained several organizations to deliver the PMD Pro courses and have provided materials for trainers at no cost to anyone interested in conducting PMD Pro certification preparation classes.
