RBM and Theory of change

The purpose of our theory
of change
workshops is to familiarize participants with challenges
related to change management and behaviour change management, for sustainable
development related to development programs/projects. Our training topics are
the following:

 

·   
Managing
for Development Results (MfDR)

·   
Strategic
Planning

·   
Results
Measurement Frameworks

·

Change Management

MfDR and Theory of Change

Countries are increasingly requested by their
development partners to show results achieved on the ground. The training on Managing for Development Results (MfDR)
aims to familiarize participants with new techniques of MfDR in order to enable
them to better focus on achieving results during the implementation of
development programs. This new approach, based on results achieved, will allow
countries to achieve their development objectives and improve their resource
mobilization with external development partners.

Main topics:

·     
Definition and recent developments

·     
Basic principles

·     
Results-based program and project management

·     
Results-based logical framework

·     
Results-based monitoring & evaluation

 

Strategic Planning

Strategic
planning will allow policymakers of a country to improve and guide their
overall development objectives to better achieve the desired results. With
efficient and effective planning, a policymaker can design a specific framework
for developing, adapting and aligning a project/program with the development
vision and goals of his/her country or organization. During this training,
PARTICIPANTS  will learn how to
facilitate, formulate, execute and monitor strategic planning for any public or
private administration.

Main
topics:

·      The
main components of strategic planning processes

·      The
use of data and decision-making tools to support planning management

·      Enhancing
communication and reaching consensus

·      Case
studies


 

 

The RMF

 

It is important for any public administration
which implements
development projects and programs to design a Result Measurement Framework
(RMF). Indeed, a country’s success in terms of development does not depend on
either the amount of money spent nor on the number of projects and programs
implemented, but only on results achieved on the ground in terms of sustained
improvements in the welfare of populations. An RMF enables to show and monitor
what a country achieved in terms of sustainable development for its
populations.

Main topics:

·     
Measures of development progress

·     
Measures of contribution of development projects and
programs
toward country development objectives

·     
Measures of efficiency and efficacy of projects and
programs
