IMA Monitoring & Evaluation for Results training - Cape Town 27 March - 7 April (10 or 5 day)

Use the results approach for projects and programmes
Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for Results is for managers and monitoring and evaluation officers who need to supervise, manage, plan and implement M&E in their projects and programmes. The course addresses M&E for the entire results chain, including the all-important outcomes. This 10-day course covers the principles, and embeds the practice of M&E for results.

Why choose this course
Delivered by our participatory practitioners with extensive field experience, this is the leading M&E course for development professionals. Those responsible for project or programme-level M&E, benefit from the latest M&E thinking and practice, including results approaches. You learn how to achieve maximum value for your organisation and its stakeholders.
Senior managers and M&E specialists responsible for an organisation-wide approach to monitoring and evaluation also attend our Results-Based Management (RBM) training course which covers the principles and tools for developing an organisation-wide RBM system.

What you will learn
Through a mix of practical activities, theory, and examples of effective practice you learn how to:
- decide what and how to monitor with different stakeholders
- clarify key results at the programme level using logic models
- plan a project using the logical framework
- develop indicators and SMART targets
- combine qualitative and quantitative approaches to gather and interpret data
- establish a baseline to assess your project’s impact
- design and manage evaluation
- use your M&E findings to stimulate learning, improvement and stakeholder buy-in.
The first week of the course gives a complete overview of M&E for projects and programmes with case studies. The second week provides an opportunity to really develop different key elements such as logframes, M&E plans, Theory of Change and evaluation techniques.
