Module 1: Result-based Monitoring and Evaluation

Dates: Monday 7th September - Friday 11th September

The first module on Result-based Monitoring and Evaluation will provide two workshops - one on how to design and build a results-based monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system in your organization; and a second on how to design, collect and analyze data for a case study evaluation. 

This course is primarily targeted toward officials who are faced with the challenge of managing for results. Developing countries in particular have multiple obstacles to overcome in building M&E systems. However, results-based M&E systems are a continuous work in progress for both developed and developing countries. When implemented properly these systems provide a continuous flow of information feedback into the system, which can help guide policymakers toward achieving the desired results. Seasoned program managers in developed countries and international organizations—where results-based M&E systems are now in place—are using this approach to gain insight into the performance of their respective organizations. 

The course, which will be delivered by Ray Rist himself, can be taken as a guide on how to design and construct a results-based M&E system in the public sector. The goal of the course is to help prepare one plan, design, and implement a results-based M&E system within one’s organization. In addition, the course (and the handbook on which it is based on) will also demonstrate how an M&E system can be a valuable tool in supporting good public management.

Module 2: Outcome and impact Evaluation

Dates: Monday 14th September - Friday 18th September

The second module, delivered by Micheal Bamberger, will provide three workshops - the first on how to identify unintended outcomes of development programs; the second on incorporating gender into monitoring and evaluation systems; the third on evaluating complex development programs.
