Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) provides a framework for effective measurement of results for both private and public sector entities. These frameworks provide a new set of tools, complementary to traditional results measurement systems, that offer governments and organisations new methods for ensuring the achievement of their strategic, policy and project goals.
Results-Based M&E (RBM&E) enables the public sector to focus its efforts on monitoring performance rather than just spending, and on evaluating long term results rather than short term outputs.
For the private sector, an RBM&E system allows management to make efficient ongoing assessments about progress towards attainment of the goals and objectives of their organisation and their stakeholders.
This course will equip participants with the knowledge to understand where and how M&E fits within the organisational or national framework, and the strategies required for its successful design, build and integration.
