Background

Based on recommendations of its Afghan Fellowship Community, the UNITAR Hiroshima Office launched the Web Seminar Series module within the framework of the Fellowship for Afghanistan. The series focuses on the importance of HRM and HRD in organizational development with the premise that with people at the centre of any successful organization, particular attention needs to be paid to managing human resources and continuously developing them.

Learning Objectives

This seminar builds on the content delivered during the Fellowship’s workshop I on maximization of performance within organizations, and responds to the stated need of the Fellows for a more detailed briefing on result-based management (RBM). As the model which is widely used by many donors, the Afghan professionals feel the need to understand and know it well. Therefore as one of the tools for better performance monitoring and accountability of projects and organizations, this seminar seeks to enhance capacities in implementation of result-based management.

Content and Structure

The seminar on RBM will cover the following topics:

-          Introduction to RBM,  its applications, why is it important?

-          Results Logic Framework Model

-          Risk Analysis and Management Table

-          Evaluation and Monitoring Plan

-          Cross-cutting themes

Methodology

The six hour session will be conducted through a combination of distance learning and on-site facilitation. The training will include presentation of concepts through video-conferencing, with small group discussion and brief exercises, facilitated by Afghan Fellowship alumni on-site.

Targeted Audience

The Seminar Series is offered to the Fellowship Alumni community, and is mandatory for the current Fellows and Coaches. The Series consists of five seminars, and UNITAR awards certificates to those who attend the complete Series. It is hoped that these substantive, cross-disciplinary sessions will provide Fellows and Alumni a greater access to more expertise on different topics and also further expand the Fellowship Community.

Additional Information

The working language of the training seminar is English.

The series is jointly organized by UNITAR and the Afghan Consulting, Training and Research Association (ACTRA), established by the UNITAR Alumni network in Afghanistan.
