Microsoft Excel for Human Resource Professionals is three day training courses that will help participants utilize Ms Excel tools to perform the daily activities in managing the company’s workforce, such as managing the varied requirements of employee’s payroll, timekeeping and records in.
Upon completion of this course the participant will:
· Learn how to resolve the difficulties they face on a daily basis in doing employee compensations, salary, leave, benefits etc.
Rural entrepreneurship has the potential to drive innovations that can reduce poverty, increase access to food and create employment. For this to happen, actors in agrifood value chains need to trust each other. However, local agrifood value chains are almost always characterised by protectionist behaviour resulting in very high marketing costs and a stalemate, instead of by a drive for positive change and development. This course is focused on breaking the deadlock these value chains are in. It hands you the tools to do that.
Over the last decades, the formal seed system in most developing countries has shifted from a publicly dominated sector to a privately dominated sector. However, throughout the world, the largest quantities of seed are still produced by farmers themselves. Integrated Seed Sector Development (ISSD) recognises the relevance of formal and informal systems and aims to balance public and private sector involvement.
Dairy sectors all over the world are challenged by expanding populations and economic growth. Growing demand for dairy products has led to a significant increase in public and private involvement and to new opportunities for a range of stakeholders. This 2 weeks course will enable participants in designing and implementing dairy development strategies in emerging economies.
The rapid rise of the middle class and rising per capita income in emerging economies are leading to increasing demand for healthy, safe and sustainably produced horticultural products. These developments offer new opportunities for farmers and stakeholders involved in the sector. However, it also requires the transition from highly fragmented and informal market channels to a more professional horticultural sector. Development of the national horticulture sector may in turn open up opportunities for accessing the international export market for horticulture products.
The steady increase in climate related disasters such as floods, cyclones, storm surges and drought have increased the exposure and vulnerability of communities, their livelihoods, physical infrastructure and economic networks. An increasing hazard risk results in higher human and economic losses from disaster events.
Large-scale production and marketing of agricultural crops depend on a limited number of genetically uniform varieties that deliver uniform food products. With this approach becoming global, genetic diversity is endangered. Worldwide, strategies are developed to conserve genetic resources. This course provides state-of-the-art insight into various plant genetic resources management strategies and relevant policies.
To go beyond just an increase in outputs to feed 9 billion people in 2050, an integral redirection of current farming practices is required. Nowadays there is a compelling need for creative thinkers that lead the way to innovative and more sustainable agricultural production. This two week’s intensive course will give you new tools and perspectives to become one of them.
Forested landscapes worldwide are increasingly integrated in global processes of trade, market development, resource exploitation and climate change. Site-based or community level approaches can no longer cope with these issues which exceed the local sphere of influence. Although landscapes are usually considered to be appropriate levels to negotiate land use options, they are rarely recognised as units of political- administrative decision making, hence do not have any formal place in decentralised structures of states.
Most development initiatives take place in highly dynamic contexts: a diversity of people is involved and change processes are complex and uncertain. Guiding your development initiative towards impact involves navigating related challenges. In this three-week course you will strengthen your ability to play a significant role in managing for impact (M4I). This asks for a proactive orientation toward people, context, and learning , and an integrative approach which connects strategic & operations management to monitoring & evaluation (M&E).
In complex food supply it is not easy to guarantee an appropriate level of protection from contaminants, toxins and residues, and not to suffer from a burden of rules and on-site inspections. To deliver safe food as well as to create sustainable business governments, producers, manufacturers and retail have to design and implement scientifically sound and practical surveillance, control and enforcement measures. But how to do that?
Competition over land and natural resources is increasingly overstretching the multi-functionality of landscapes, whether it is at local or at global level. With the ambition as enshrined in numerous international conventions and national polices alike to reconcile agricultural development and the wise use of our natural resources, this places enormous pressure on resource managers to broker development outcomes that suit both agendas.
Every year it becomes clearer that climate change is happening at a rapid pace and that it will have a profound impact on agriculture and management of natural resources. Without appropriate responses, climate change is likely to constrain economic development and poverty reduction efforts.
There has been a substantial increase in the number and impact of natural disasters such as earth quake of Nepal April 2015. But also man-made crisis and disasters are increasing and many conflicts have remained unresolved. Emergency or food aid, although necessary, is often criticised as a donor driven response, creating dependency in the short term, and undermining initiatives for local agricultural development in the longer term.
Today, markets have become mainstream instruments for poverty reduction, smallholder inclusion and increased food & nutrition security. However, market dynamics, failures and shortcomings often diminish the desired impacts and/or long term effects. This international course shows participants to which extent and in which manner markets can be used to induce and prolong positive change.
Threats and opportunities challenge businesses to re-think the status quo of their operations: rising demand for agrifood products, combined with strains on water, land, and labour, stress the growing urgency of securing supply. As the world witnesses a shifting business landscape, old, unresolved problems scream out for attention.
This Knowledge Management (KM) training course teaches you how to implement an efficient method of collecting and using the informational assets, and intellectual resources of the employees, for assisting in organizational success. This Knowledge Management course from pd training teaches you how to create a system that captures knowledge purposefully for incorporation into business strategies, policies, and practices at all levels of the organization.
Standard courses on statistical analysis assume that survey data arise from a simple random sample of the target population. Little attention is given to characteristics often associated with survey data, including missing data, unequal probabilities of selection, stratified multistage sample designs, and measurement errors. Most standard statistical procedures in software packages commonly used for data analysis (e.g.
The Census and Survey Processing System (CSPro) is a tool for entering, editing, tabulating and disseminating data from surveys and censuses.
Stata is a complete statistical software package for data management, data analysis and graphics. It comprises classical and advanced functions including: panel data analysis, forecasting, time series analysis, survival analysis, cross sectional and longitudinal survey methods, structural equation modeling, simulation methods and tables for almost all researchers and analysts. The software can be used via a graphical user interface (menus and dialog boxes) or a command-line interface using its very intuitive programming language.
