This study aims at achieving the following major specific objectives:

1. To what extent participatory method is being used in NAPD and similar different organizations in Project Management Courses.

2. To find out the gap between expectations and actual experience of participatory method in project management courses of NAPD.

3. To study the present trend of participatory training methods in selected regional training organizations.

 

The aim of this study is to explore how far NAPD organized training programs are effectively participated rather than other training institutions as well as universities. Training methods are important for gratifying the needs of the trainees which generate the demand of the NAPD organized training courses. To get this answer we have to find out effective training methods and develop the course curriculum accordingly to formulate effective training courses. General objective of the study is to assess the applicability of participatory methods of selected project management training programs of NAPD. In this research, extent of participatory method used in two selected project management training courses was analyzed. One is six months long Project Planning, Development and Management (PPDM) and the other is strategic Planning and Project Management (SPPM). The trainers mostly followed lecture method in NAPD organized training courses. Sometimes they also used group exercise and case study methods. 58.2% of the trainers opined that they got enough time for the preparation for conducting session. The study was conducted among some reputed institutes like BIM, BARD, DU, ISRT-DU, BRAC, BUET,IBA-DU & so on and was observed that all of these follow lecture methods specially in providing training  on Research Methodology, Project Management, Monitoring & Evaluation, project Appraisal etc. But case study & group work methods are also widely used methods. The trainers followed lecture method mostly when conducting training session in different training organizations. They also included group work and case study accordingly as effective methods. The comparative analysis of various participatory methods among the different module of the selected training courses was analyzed. The findings indicate that the majority of the NAPD respondents opined about lecture (82.42%) and group work (51.65%) methods were applied. For the project appraisal module NAPD participants agreed that lecture method (87%) is the most effective method than others. Most of the NAPD trainees opined that lecture, case study and field visit are more effective for the project implementation module. When the respondents were asked to rank the factors to consider in case of using participatory method, participants’ interest was at the top as a factor. In considering the factors in case of participatory methods the trainers considered time, resources, organizers’ view point and participant’s interest are of important factor for implementing participatory methods in training sessions. When the respondents were asked to express about the factors which are beneficial to the trainees as a result of using participatory methods, most of them opined that the participatory methods encouraged learning environment. Total 46 respondents expressed about the time limit or duration of the classes. Potential Respondents of this research were asked to identify the challenges to introduce participatory methods in the selected courses. Total 56 respondents opined about the time limit or duration of the classes.

This study aims at achieving the following objectives:

1. To measure the SIP implementation status of attached departments of Narayanganj district. 

2. To explore the improvement of service delivery of SIP programs.

3. To identify the problems and sustainability issues of SIP programs of Narayanganj district.

The Improving Public Services through Total Quality Management (IPS-TQM) Project is a five-year (2013-2018) long collaborative project of Bangladesh Public Administration Training Centre (BPATC) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and five partner institutes. NAPD is one of the partner institutes of this project. The General Objective of this Project is to improve the quality of public services in the Upazilla-level Offices of the Government in Bangladesh through training and application of Total Quality Management (TQM) and Kaizen. In FY 2015-16 with the collaboration of NAPD and JICA implemented 23 small improvement programs in Upazila level offices of Narayanganj district were implemented.  The objective of the research was to measure the SIP implementation status in the offices of Upazila level of Narayanganj district, to explore the improvement after implementation of SIPs and finally make some recommendations for better service considering identified problems and challenges.  Survey was conducted in 21 offices among 23 Upazilla offices in Narayanganj district. Almost all the offices successfully implemented the small improvement programs. Though there are some problems and challenges, sustainability persisted in most of the offices. With limited resources, these offices had done better in terms of service delivery. In all the cases, SIPs were focused on customer (beneficiaries) satisfaction. Finally the research made some recommendation considering problems and challenges in each SIP. One thing was common i.e. continuation of Kaizen training and workshop. Because continuous improvement is possible through repetitive actions and arranging awareness building programs for the service providers.  Finally a synergic work environment which promotes healthy competitions among different wings/ divisions of an office can do betterment in terms of service delivery.

Specially the study attempted the following things:

Firstly, recent trend of girls’ education subsuming women’s education are presented in order to demonstrate the emerging scenario of girl’ education in Bangladesh. Secondly, the study highlights the present and past policies, strategies and programmes for promotion of girls’ education; Thirdly, it analyses the socio-economic variables which directly or indirectly influence the girls’ education; Fourthly, the study analyses the sectoral gender sensitive measures and programmes taken by government which are likely to influence girls’ and women’s education; Finally, the study proffers recommendations for enhancing girls’ accessibility to education in future.

The most formidable problem in the way of girls’ education in Bangladesh is not male domination but poverty, unequal opportunity and lack of management capability.

To Give the various dimensions of the literacy programme, the main objective of the study is to address the issue of gender parity. The specific objectives are

  • To assess empirically the contribution of literacy programme now being implemented, in phases, through TLM CBA approach in Bangladesh on gender parity.
  • To assess the knowledge-base of the female neo-literate with regard to gender sensitivity.
  • To measure the level of awareness amongst them about gender parity.
  • To measure the attitudinal changes amongst the female neo-literate about gender rights and obligation of the male and female in the society.
  • To explore the evidence of actions in favour of gender parity by the female neo-literate in their daily life; and
  • To analyze the process of the literacy programme through content analysis of the text book, Chetona and Focus Group Discussion (FGD).

Total Literacy Movement (TLM) and Centre Based Approach (CBA) areas with literacy programme and controlled area without literacy programme exhibit varying levels of perception and knowledge of the neo-literate and non-literate in respect of gender related issues. Main reason for this uniformity of trend is that the two areas are constantly being influenced by Government development work, NGOs’ activity and issue based information communicated through Radio and television.
