Cutting Edge Monitoring & Evaluation:
A Guide for Practitioners
This course provides a novel way of looking at the practice of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). The question “what difference are we making”– as an individual, project, programme, organisation or network, is increasingly important whether for learning or accountability. The course lays out the challenges, introduces a tool-box of techniques and shows where these can be best applied through practical strategies and case studies. M&E are viewed as critical to all stages of a policy or programme development. Ways of promoting early participation and the engagement of key stakeholders are explored and benefits and risks assessed. This lays the ground for M&E to make vital contributions to incentivising change and measure performance. In later sections techniques to measure impact and enable learning are provided.

The course is taught by a trainer who has effectively managed his own consultancy since 10 years. Through practical exercises, presentations and case studies, participants will learn and develop key strategic and “soft” skills for becoming a successful evaluation consultant.

This course considers some of the challenges that evaluators and evaluation managers face when striving to have an impartial evaluation of a programme. It will focus on the humanitarian and development contexts where it has been less openly discussed. Although there are certainly political factors stemming from ideological and policy debates that can affect the “success” of an intervention, this course will particularly focus on how the “political” interests of the various partners involved can influence the evaluation process. It will then go on to look at what measures can be taken to address these potential threats and protect the professional integrity of the evaluator and the contract manager.
This course brings together the two exciting new areas of Real Time Evaluation (RTE) and Adaptive Management (AM) which combine to offer huge potential for the M&E practitioner, particularly in complex and uncertain environments. What exactly is an RTE/AM approach and how can it help to learn quickly in unstable or conflict-affected situations? Do M&E practitioners need to ditch their standard approaches and what can you do if there is no counterfactual or dataset? This course covers these challenges and more. It lets you see how to provide timely insights to steer programmes and projects.
