Fundamentals of Project Management Training with Bangladesh Bank /

Well trained project and programme management practitioners are essential for the successful delivery of strategic outcomes, however, as professionals from a range of disciplines become increasingly involved in projects, all managers now need a good understanding of the principles of sound project management.

In June 2021, Bangladesh Bank (The Central Bank of Bangladesh) contracted Crown Agents to develop a customised training course tailored to the needs of 11 officials within the bank’s Project Management Unit (PMU) and related government ministries.

Bangladesh Bank was in the process of implementing a project entitled “Program to support Safety Retrofits and Environmental Upgrades in the Bangladeshi Ready-Made Garments Sector (SREUP)”, in partnership with various Europe-based agencies. The training course delivered by Crown Agents aimed to equip delegates with key skills in project management so that they could meet the demands of this programme; this included facilitating low-cost finances to the export-oriented RMG factories of Bangladesh to address their safety remediation and social and  up-gradation issues.


With content tailored to the financial services context in which the bank operates, Crown Agents delivered practical customised training over the course of six half-day sessions to enhance the skills delegates needed to deliver this project.

Training delivery methods were highly interactive, and the course was designed with a large degree of practical content, including group discussions, learning exercises, scenario role-playing and case studies. A central focus was on delegate action planning as a process to translate classroom learning into skills in the workplace. Due to the challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, this programme was delivered remotely over the Zoom platform.
