SEAD capacity building workshops received successfully by Rwandan IPRCs and Universities


From 13 until 22 March 2019 MSM provided two trainings in Kigali, Rwanda for the Nuffic funded SEAD project “Strengthening educational institutes in providing capacity building services for sustainable agricultural development”.

From 13 until 20 March session 2 of the training Cyclical Management & Leadership for middle management from Universities and IPRC’s took place. Ms. Rita van Deuren (Head Global Custom Programs and International Project Consultant) and Mr. Leo Kerklaan (Associate Consultant in strategic leadership) gave the training where the focus was on monitoring and control in a managerial role. After the training, the participants received a ‘back home action plan’ where they have to develop a plan to monitor milestones and key performance indicators (KPI).

The participants that took part came from the University of Rwanda College of Business & Economics, College of Agriculture, Animal Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, College of Science and Technology and INES Ruhengeri.

The weeklong training was concluded with a real life interactive class simulation.
