A CONSULTANT says time is a scarce resource thus planning is very important to ensure time is saved to do other things as well. 

Benedict Gumbaketi told participants during a training workshop last week that proper planning of projects and use of public money would contribute to the development and benefit of the country.  

The training was to prepare project planners to use a K500 million the Government has allocated for infrastructure in six universities next year. 

Gumbaketi facilitated the training on project planning and programming using “Microsoft Projects”. 

The training was organised by the Office of Higher Education as an initiative of director-general Prof David Kavanamur. 

Gumbaketi said the use of Microsoft Projects as a tool to plan and manage projects would make the job of project planners easier. 

Representatives from the universities, including OHE staff, attended the training. University of Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Adventist University representatives did not attend.  

University of Goroka’s Dr James Yoko said the training was timely as it introduced a software application that could make planning easier.
