The European Training Foundation has published a handbook for TEMPUS programme participants, entitled "Objective-oriented project design and management".

With more than 2,500 projects already funded by the TEMPUS programme since 1990, experience has shown that projects encounter major problems when key factors are overlooked or not properly dealt with during project design and implementation. The handbook aims to provide a framework for project planning and management, using the Logical Framework Approach introduced to TEMPUS in 1996.

The handbook introduces the Approach and provides a guide to its use, however it is not a "procedures manual". It builds on the experience gained in two project management skills training workshops, and presents model techniques and approaches which would need to be modified to individual cases. It covers topics such as design and management, monitoring and evaluation, financial management, working relationships, communications, and activity and cost schedules.
