The afternoon will be split into 3 main parts (2 formal and 1 more informal). The programme will be as follows:
2.00 - 2.30 : Welcome
2.30 - 3.40 : Part 1 on the Sigmah software, its features and the link with the issue of Quality.
3.40 - 3.50 : Break
3.50 - 5.00 : Part 2 on the Sigmah project, open source software, and adopting the software.
5.00 - 7.00 : Part 3 - more informal: individual demonstrations of the software and discussions over drinks.
For those who have to leave at 5 pm to go to the event organised by VOICE, you will be able to try out the software at the Sigmah stand during the DG ECHO Partners’ Conference.
Sigmah is open source software for the shared management of international aid projects. The software is simple, flexible and intuitive and allows each organisation to organize its own work methods, and thereby improve the quality of its programmes. It is the result of a participatory project facilitated by a group of organisations from the sector. Based on the expertise of Groupe URD and its professional and voluntary partners, they have developed the software so that it corresponds to what aid organizations say they need and have placed it in the public realm so that it is available to all.
