The Power of M&E

The Power of M&E Workshop is for project managers and M&E professionals who want to improve their program-management skills using updated approaches and monitoring methodologies that conform to a results-based management best-practice. In short, this workshop teaches you skills that help you monitor & evaluate (M&E) both projects and programmes – and will also help you achieve better results.

This 5-day workshop is held publically, or can be custom-tailored to an organization’s needs. For example, if you need your entire team working on an M&E plan for your organization or project, this workshop is an ideal place to get that work started.

This workshop is for both the beginning manager, as well as the experienced – anyone who wants to really dig deep into M&E should plan on attending.

Workshop Goals

In this workshop, participants will work in teams to achieve the following:

  • Brainstorm your org’s current state of M&E and discuss how to do better
  • Understand the basic concepts behind functional M&E
  • See how your Value for Money (VfM) can be improved by following proper M&E
  • Actually plan how to ensure a project results-chain is logically presented in logframe, as well as how to set realistic indicators for better results
  • Learn how to link project/programme logframe while preparing a Results-based M&E Framework
  • Learn how to gather data efficiently and how to roll out an Results-based M&E system within your organization
  •  Practice breaking down the work like a pro – using a Work Breakdown Structure and a mind-mapping tool
  •  Prepare your data for reporting that, in the end, will make your M&E work shine
