Success: How to show who is 'better off' using a simple framework

This bus stop presentation will use a simple results based accountability framework (plan on a page) which demonstrates who is better off as a result of engaging in a particular programme. It also presents other components of the programme: stakeholders, outputs, activities and participants feedback. It shows both qualitative and quantitative information.

The three main points of the presentation are:

  1. You need to be very clear about what your programme will achieve
  2. Build an evaluation process into a programme from the planning phase, and
  3. Keep track of how things are going with a small, simple and sustainable monitoring process.
