Remote management has been common in humanitarian action in countries with fragile contexts and in projects involving multiple countries and continents for quite some time. With the pandemic in 2020, remote management in the field of development cooperation and humanitarian action entered a new phase and nearly every organization integrated remote management, remote monitoring and/or remote evaluation with the respective tools into its day-to-day work. Today we can draw back on a wide range of methods and approaches for remote activities and choose the most appropriate ones for each specific context. The training will prepare you to determine whether a remote approach is useful or even necessary in your field of work. You will have the chance to reflect your current management style and to get familiarized with tools that you can adapt to your management. The training will include the presentation of case studies as well as group work and peer-coaching.
The training will take place as an in-person training on 4 and 5 March 2024.
