  1. Outcome Mapping

    Synonyms: 
    OM
    Approach

    Outcome mapping (OM) is a methodology for planning, monitoring and evaluating development initiatives in order to bring about sustainable social change. As the name suggests, its niche is understanding outcomes; the so-called ‘missing-middle’ or ‘black box’ of results that emerge downstream from the initiative’s activities but upstream from longer-term economic, environmental, political or demographic changes.

  2. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 16: Identifying and documenting emergent outcomes of a global network

    Global voluntary networks are complex beasts with dynamic and unpredictable actions and interactions. How can we evaluate the results of a network like this? Whose results are we even talking about?

  3. Outcome Mapping: Building learning and reflection into development programs

    2011

    This book by Sarah Earl, Fred Carden and Terry Smutylo takes an original approach to assessing development impacts by focusing on the way in which people relate to each other and to their environment rather than simply evaluating the products a program produces. This book aims to improve the effectiveness of programs by proving information on how to be specific about the principle actors, the expected changes, and the strategies a program will employ. The steps involved in the outcome mapping approach are laid out and explained in this book, supported by detailed information on designing and facilitating workshops and a number of worksheets and examples.

  4. Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting. Adaptive Management for Complex Development Programs

    This course focuses on two methods for planning, monitoring and evaluation in dynamic environments where development results can be both planned and unanticipated. Outcome Mapping is a set of tools used for planning, monitoring and evaluating interventions aimed at bringing about social, economic or technological change. The idea is that to succeed, an intervention needs to involve multiple stakeholders. OM connects ‘outputs’ to ‘outcomes’ by focusing on the patterns of action and interaction among stakeholders. Outcome Harvesting is used to identify, formulate, analyse and interpret what was achieved and how, regardless of whether it was pre-defined or not. Conventional M&E can be inappropriate because what is done and what is achieved may vary considerably from the original plan. OH enables people responsible for monitoring and evaluating development work to identify and formulate intended and unintended, positive and negative outcomes, determine how the intervention contributed to them.

  6. Mapeo de alcances

    Synonyms: 
    MA
    Approach

    El mapeo de alcances (MA), también llamado mapeo de resultados (outcomes), es una metodología para planificar, hacer seguimiento y evaluar las iniciativas de desarrollo con el fin de generar un cambio social sostenible. Como su nombre lo indica, su objetivo es la comprensión de los alcances o resultados, es decir, del llamado segmento medio faltante (missing-middle) o la „caja negra“ de los resultados que emergen a nivel micro de las actividades de la iniciativa, pero tambien de los cambios económicos, ambientales, políticos o demográficos que se generan a nivel macro a más largo plazo.

    This is the 12th annual season of the Monitoring and Evaluation Professional Summer Training Programme for Development Experts and Practitioners. The focus this year is on two methods for planning, monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) - Advanced Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting - that enable programme managers to plan, implement and report on their outcomes in dynamic environments where development results can be both planned and unanticipated. The two modules on Advanced Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting are designed as tools for the adaptive management of complex development programmes, beyond the usual M&E methods of Result-Based M&E and the Logical Framework.
