An introductory programme for managers and their teams
In a demanding and highly competitive environment, managers in the public, NGO and private sectors are under increasing pressure to enhance the effectiveness of programmes intended to achieve socio-economic transformation, enterprise and supplier development goals.
This can best be achieved through the implementation of a Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) process that is integral to the design and management of any corporate social investment, enterprise development or preferential procurement project. An M&E system enables organisations to assess whether interventions or projects are working or not, while implementation is taking place; thereby ensuring that goals will be met within time and budget constraints. One of the building blocks of implementing M&E in any organisation is that relevant management and staff need to develop a common M&E language, as well as M&E specific skills in planning, data collection, data analysis and reporting.
A solid starting point is our interactive three-day M&E workshop, which gives project teams and their managers the basic understanding and skills required to plan and implement an M&E process that delivers results.
