Training with TTT

Posted on 4th June, by JimYoung in Blog. No Comments

Training and Technology Transfer (TTT), established in 1989, is an international development organisation focused primarily on working with the public sector in developing countries.  The company is represented in 22 countries with a global scope of operations covering 40 countries.  Since its inception TTT has completed over 210 projects worldwide.

I have undertaken work for TTT overseas and in New Zealand.  The most recent assignment was to deliver a customised training course on project management at Victoria University of Wellington NZ during May 2013 for senior economists from the Bangladesh Government photographed here at the entrance to the impressive Hunter Building, which in 1906 housed the entire university.

Bangladeshi OfficialsMr Md. Mostafizur Rahman, Deputy Secretary, Economic Relations; Mr Syed Rashedul Hossen, Senior Assistant Secretary;  Ms Nusrat Noman, Senior Assistant Secretary; Ms Makshuda Hossain, Senior Assistant Secretary; Mr AHM Jahangir, Deputy Chief; and myself.

Another group of senior project and programme stakeholders and economists from the Bangladeshi Ministry of Finance who have a particular interest in Results-Based Project Management (RBM), which is a particularly important methodology for helping to ensure that Bangladesh’s longer term and expensive development projects are proceeding on track to produce their promised beneficial results.  For a PowerPoint explanation please check here.  The tuition was during the period 22 – 25 June 2013 at Wellington Victoria University.


The people in the photo, other than my conspicuous self, in no particular order are Ms Shahin Islam ((Deputy Secretary), Mr A Gaffar Khan (Deputy Secretary), Mr Md Masud Rana Chowdhury (Senior Assistant Chief), Ms Shova Shahnaz (Senior Assistant Secretary), Ms Roksana Khan (Senioir Assistannt Secretary),  Md Shahariar Kader Siddiky (Deputy Secretary), Mr Meer Ahemed Tariqual Omar (Senior Assistant Chief), and Ms Mashuda Amatullah (Assistant Chief).
