Effective monitoring is essential for managing performance, however, despite this, monitoring is often undervalued and understood quite narrowly.
While the term “Monitoring and Evaluation” (M&E) is widely used, the monitoring function has not always benefitted from the same level of investment, professionalization and systems strengthening as the evaluation function. Instead, the monitoring function is often relegated to or viewed as a lower-level, technical function. This comes at the expense of really using monitoring to manage performance and maximise impact.
In this guest blog, Jo Hall discusses how evidence of outcomes and impact can be better captured, integrated and reported on across different scales of work.
