Excerpt from “A STARTER’S GUIDE TO RESULTS BASED MANAGEMENT – Determine whether your project or programme is making a genuine difference.”
Planning, monitoring and evaluation come together as RBM. RBM is defined as “a broad management strategy aimed at achieving improved performance and demonstrable results,” and has been adopted by many multilateral development organizations, bilateral development agencies and public administrations throughout the world (as noted earlier, some of these organizations now refer to RBM as MfDR to place the emphasis on development rather than organizational results).
Good RBM is an ongoing process. This means that there is constant feedback, learning and improving. Existing plans are regularly modified based on the lessons learned through monitoring and evaluation, and future plans are developed based on these lessons.
Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is a critical part of RBM. It forms the basis for clear and accurate reporting on the results achieved by an intervention (project or programme). In this way, information reporting is no longer a headache, but becomes an opportunity for critical analysis and organizational learning, informing decision-making and impact assessment.

– Activity monitoring (use of resources and progress)
– Compliance monitoring (ensures compliance with donor regulations)
– Beneficiary monitoring (beneficiary perception of project/ programme)
– Financial monitoring (accounts for costs)
Monitoring and evaluation best practices:
– Monitoring data should be well-focused to specific audiences and uses (only what is necessary and sufficient).
-Monitoring should be systematic, based upon predetermined indicators and assumptions.
– Monitoring should also look for unanticipated changes with the project/ programme and its context, including any changes in project/programme…
