Programme and project management

Our team are experienced pratitioners in recognised programme and project management methodologies. We have delivered many diverse projects successfully in Africa and Europe.  

We have used that knowledge to formulate our own methodology, based on proven techniques, recognised good practice and robust technology for use in Kenya. It enables all stakeholders to collaborate effectively, follow good practice processes easily, and concentrate on delivering a successful outcome.

This framework is applied to all our projects and can be adapted for use in external engagements. 

Learning Frameworks

Embrace has developed learning frameworks, curricula, and content which constitute a valuable resource.

In addition, we have established an integrated process for the development and delivery of learning and communication programmes across multiple media types, teaching styles, delivery channels, and languages. Our approac and supporting information systems not only provide a definitive, version-controlled repository of content, it includes a full learning management system which coordinates delivery of complex training programmes with individual and group performance tracking, human resorce assignment, and administrative functions including accreditation, awards, and billing.

Performance monitoring, metrics and analysis

As part of its work on the KNVS Embrace have devised and developed a structured approach for the development and operation of performance systems including precise metricsm, performance indictors, the compilation of indices and data analysis. 

Our work on these areas is intended to provide highly relevant, reliable data which can be used at organisation level to track operational performance, ensure compliance, and drive improvements.

This data can be used in peer-group and sector comparisons, the setting of targets and benchmarks, and aggregated for analysis up to county and national levels. Data collection, sharing and analysis is always subject to robust information governance principles and practices consistent with privacy and confidentiality protocols and regulations.

Collaboration platform

The approach to programme and project management has been extended to form a collaboration platform which can be utilised for secure communication and collaboration in many scenarios. This approach ensures that information can be shared easily and securely. For example it facilitates account management, stakeholder engagement, and compliance with agreeed processes and procedures.
