Optimising ACE’s Project Management

Understanding the importance of providing capacity development assistance for its key partner, GIZ through the   ASEAN-German Energy Programme (AGEP) Phase II; a jointly implemented programme by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is mandated to provide series of leadership and managerial training for ACE personnel.

The first training on Project Management (PM) was organised on 8-10 March 2021 to assist ACE in overseeing its projects from its early phase to the end by using holistic approach.  ACE personnel are expected to be able to understand the likelihood of project execution success through the full implementation cycle of project management by achieving OTOBOS (on time, on budget, on scope). The PM Training also introduced several essential tools to plan the resource capability and analyse the impact of implementing projects and delivering services. This training is aimed at preparing ACE staffs’ ability to explore the partnership & opportunity with potential partners. As a post-evaluation result, more than 50% of the trainees has improved their knowledge on PM Fundamental.

The training was really practical and interactive even although conducted virtually. I believe it surely benefits ACE personnel in terms of our professional performance.  I personally expect it can create positive impacts in the progress of ACE business development, because not only it can improve our internal management practices and quality of works but also to enhance our approach in engagement with ACE partners”,  said Dynta Trishana Munardy, Business Development Officer of ACE.
