Project Cycle Management (PCM) is a methodology that perceives development projects as cyclical processes rather than linear processes. A project is a cycle of its design, implementation, and evaluation; it is also interwoven in a cycle of a myriad of projects which are linked with suggestions and lessons extracted from other projects which have been already implemented. The PCM has its advantages in ensuring efficient management, reflecting beneficiaries’ needs, promoting accountability and transparency, and encouraging communications among stakeholders through participatory process in designing a project. By definition, clear causal relations, which are explained by a relationship between means and ends, inhere in a project designed using through the PCM methodologies: thus this method enables consistent project implementation. This is the intensive lecture in English to understand the concept of Project Cycle and management in the field.
