Sigmah training course, Paris, 27 March 2014

This training course, which is being co-organised by Groupe URD and Coordination SUD, is an introduction to Sigmah, open source software for the shared management of humanitarian and development projects. Participants will learn what the software can help them to do will gain hands-on experience of using it. They will also learn about the issues involved in adopting the software within their organisation as part of a quality approach and about the collective nature of the project.
