“It’s all about achieving results…”

What is this course about?
Although it sounds very logical and obvious to manage for results, in reality many projects, programmes and organizations focus on ‘doing good things’ and often fail to achieve the longer term vision and or results that they say are important to them. When you focus on results, you focus on doing the right thing at the right time towards achievement of those results. Results-Based Management (RBM) is not a new concept and has been driving corporate strategy for many years. In the last couple of years the concept has gained influence in the development sector. What does Results-Based Management really mean in terms of your day-to-day work, how do you define results, what tools, should you use and what are the consequences for project planning and monitoring? This course will offer you a range of tools and approaches to plan and monitor your projects and programmes focusing on achievement of your desired results at all levels.

PARTICIPANTS
Staff of development organisations involved in managing projects, project or programme officers, community development workers and facilitators or consultants who are in need of mastering concepts and tools whilst managing projects.

COURSE OBJECTIVES 
This course aims to provide you with a set of RBM tools and skills to apply these tools in your day-to-day work. The tools and skills can be used in planning new projects, designing monitoring systems and running projects. The starting point is that all tools are participatory by nature, meaning involving stakeholders, but ultimately focusing on results instead of activities.
