Managing for Impact - An integrated approach to participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation


Make a difference by being responsive and proactive

Whether you work in agriculture, health, social change processes, natural resource management or value chain development: you want your initiative to make a difference. This means that it needs to connect appropriately to specific contexts.  You will be challenged to come up with a sound strategic design and effective operations; with M&E processes that help you navigate in a changing context; and with a way of engaging people meaningfully in these processes. This is the essence of managing for impact (M4I). In this course you will link the theory and concepts of the M4I approach and put M&E at the service of your core management processes. Your learning will be highly interactive; you will receive individual coaching by peers and course facilitators and will be challenged to translate the content to an approach that is appropriate and feasible back home.

Course objectives

Upon completion of the course you will:

  • have strengthened your competence to manage for impact in your own individual sphere of work;
  • be able to play a more effective role in helping your organisation to manage for impact;
  • understand principles and practice of strategic thinking and guidance; effective operations; monitoring and evaluation for change; change management; interactive processes for people engagement and learning; the learning organisation; capacities and conditions for M4I;
  • have built up a strategic attitude.
