STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE

STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE

We live in an age of fundamental change where companies, Governments, public corporations and non-government organisations are engaged in innovations in order to meet the demands of this new age. This is particularly true of developing countries where the effects of poor performance, unsatisfied clients, poverty, unemployment, disease and political instability are even more pronounced. In the midst of all this, we find a multitude of social, economic, health, educational and political interventions – programmes, projects, initiatives, campaigns – that are designed and implemented to address the most urgent developmental demands. These interventions are driven by a wide variety of actors within and outside of government and funded by public and private organisations as well as international foundations and agencies.

More often than not, new programmes and interventions have to be regularly monitored and evaluated. As such, programme monitoring and evaluation has now become a regular feature of the planning and implementation of all social, political and economical interventions. Whether the aim is to conduct a one-off implementation evaluation, end-of-term impact, continuous programme monitoring or participatory process evaluations, all of these require basic knowledge of and proficiency in the methodology and different approaches in monitoring and evaluation.
