You can’t improve what you don’t evaluate!
This course focuses on internal and external project evaluation and presents how these tools are used to measure and improve the performance of projects. Participants work step by step on the process of designing and performing an evaluation.
After reviewing key management issues required to design an evaluation plan (i.e., Results-Based Management and Project Cycle), participants focus on the main concepts in the field of the project evaluation (i.e., founding principles, types, and criteria).
The course then presents the phases and the steps of the evaluation process.
During the first steps – the design phase-specific focus is given to the definition of the evaluation questions, the identification of the resources, the reasons leading to the choice of an external or/and internal evaluator, and finally the preparation of the data collection.
As per the second phase – the conduction of the evaluation – participants work on how to organize the procedures for data collection, how to process and analyze data, and how to formulate recommendations that are feasible to implement. Finally, participants look into activities related to the communication and sharing of the findings, as well as the way to incorporate in the project documents the corrective management actions.
The application to the course is open to candidates that have previously followed the module on Planning, Programming, and Monitoring projects (5 days). Exceptionally, and in condition to the approval of Seasoned Development Solutions, the course is also open to participants with advanced project management skills.
