Sigmah Phase 2: the project changes scale!
Managing project information is the cornerstone of adopting a Quality approach within an organisation in concrete terms. Sigmah, open source software for the shared management of international aid projects, was created due to the convergence of Groupe URD’s work on Quality and the needs of NGOs. After a successful Pilot phase, co-funding from the French Development Agency is now going to allow Phase 2 to be launched. Sigmah’s Steering Cooperative calls on new financial and operational partners to join them.
