Monitoring and evaluation are essential to improving project effectiveness. Effective project monitoring allows a project team to make appropriate decisions on a day-to-day basis and ensures that projects are carried out as planned, and modified when necessary. Evaluation enables a project manager to understand and demonstrate the results of their work, determine the best strategies for achieving the project objectives and document lessons learned to improve future programmes.
This course in Result- Based Monitoring and Evaluation is primarily designed to introduce the principles and processes involved in developing and managing basic M & E systems and tasks and to allow participants to use the M&E systems in their professional arena. The course is offered to meet the growing demand on programme managers to fulfill M & E requirements since the demands for value for money is rapidly increasing. The programme is also designed to provide a structured approach to monitoring and evaluation of public strategies, programmes and projects, as well as tools for the design and implementation of an integrated results-based monitoring and evaluation system.
The course will not be oriented to a specific programme field, but will accommodate practitioners from the full range of social and development programmes, with an emphasis on underlying programme management processes rather than on discipline-specific issues.
The PM tools, techniques and methodologies are in line with International Standards as established by the Project Management Institute's (PMI)® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide, Fourth Edition), and in accordance with Industry Best Practices.
