PPM-Darwin

Over the years, in excess of 65 Participatory Project Management (PPM), as well as 40 Disaster Risk Management (DRM), workshops, have been facilitated by TorqAid across Australia and overseas.  From the 8-10th April 2019, Chris Piper facilitated a customised PPM workshop in Darwin for a specialised branch within the Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health. This was primarily aimed at practitioners who work on Aboriginal Community Development projects throughout the Territory.   A post-workshop overview of the Darwin PPM can be found here.

The Project Management Cycle (PMC) lay at the heart of the Darwin PPM.  Other complementary teaching material included the Project Design Document (PDD), Objectives and Risk Management.  A key participatory tool utilised throughout the workshop was the Ten Seed Technique (TST), as this was invaluable in helping identify and rank community strengths and challenges.  With regards the latter (identified and ranked Aboriginal Community Development challenges), group work then focussed on analysing causes, effects, and potential positive solutions.  Relevant development and humanitarian case studies from around Australia, the Pacific and Asia were also utilised, these including the ‘What Matters’ humanitarian bulletins produced in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, a regular publication which drills into insights from the Rohingya refugee, and Bangladeshi host, communities.
