Executive Leadership Program In Monitoring and Evaluation

Executive Leadership Program In Monitoring and Evaluation For Private and Public Sector

The profession and practice of monitoring and evaluation is still evolving. Experiences and innovation in Africa, including those based on indigenous context and cultures offer significant potential to enhance monitoring and evaluation theory and practice.

Monitoring and Evaluation is a relatively new field that has emerged from a diverse array of applied social sciences. Although it is practice-oriented, there has been a proliferation of programs in monitoring and evaluation that just prescribe to theory than actual practice.

The Executive Leadership Program in Monitoring and Evaluation for Private and Public Sector is designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice to inform planning and policy making. It is led by a team of professionals who combine years of extensive practical experience in monitoring and evaluation for development in international institutions as well as African-based organizations. They are rooted in practical experience gained globally and are fully aware of all the theories and practices that have shaped evaluation as a profession.

Who Should Attend?

Parliamentarians, policy makers, public sector directors and managers, M&E professionals and non-professionals, evaluation consultants/practitioners, evaluation steering committee members, and those commissioning evaluations.

Course Content

The workshop offers an intensive training that will cover the fundamental concepts and tools for monitoring and evaluating public and private sector development programs. The course will include all elements that are needed to design, build, and implement effective monitoring and evaluation plans for organization and institutions in Africa.
