Tracking results, learning and knowledge management


What once was called monitoring and evaluation has evolved into a world of opportunity for learning, sharing and increasing impact. Sometimes legal requirements oblige organizations to perform a social and environmental assessment. However, forecasting and tracking results is no longer just about accountability, but making informed management decisions, re-thinking strategy, communicating with purpose, and improving efficiency and effectiveness on projects and within the organization.

Leading-edge organizations build transparent loops for monitoring and assessing results with their clients and stakeholders, reflect progress against self-defined targets, and share findings from both successes and failures. Today monitoring can actually be participative, empowering and even fun!

Especially for:


  • Non-profit organizations seeking to improve their contribution and impact
  • Non-profits wishing to renew their monitoring and evaluation practices, with more emphasis on sharing and learning
  • Non-profits seeking to understand differentiated impact on specific groups or environments
  • Non-profits requiring data for communications, reporting and accountability purposes (incl. social and environmental impact assessments)
  • Non-profits seeking to improve organizational practices, transparency and knowledge sharing
  • Non-profits wanting to boost staff capacities in tracking, analyzing and reporting on results, learning and sharing
