Outcome mapping for programme and project planning, Accra, Ghana

Time (GMT +00) 00:00 23:59

Course trainers:
Julius Nyangaga - International Institute of Rural Reconstruction
Simon Hearn - Research Officer, ODI


The Institute for Development Practice and Management (IDPM) of PDA Ghana and ODI, UK, are hosting a 3-day workshop to introduce the basic principles of Outcome Mapping, with particular emphasis on their application to the planning phase of development projects and programmes.

Designed for programme managers, desk officers and field staff from NGOs, funding agencies and national and international development organisations looking for effective ways to address the dynamics of change in the complex environments in which they work.

In the course, participants will learn how Outcome Mapping can help:

  • Planning and measuring social change in development projects and corporate initiatives;
  • Bring stakeholders into the planning, monitoring & evaluation processes;
  • Foster social and organizational learning;
  • Strengthen partnerships and alliances;
  • Understand and influence more effectively, human and ecological well-being.

Development professionals around the world are using Outcome Mapping because it helps them address questions such as:

  • How do we move beyond attribution to document contribution to social change?
  • How can we systematically and realistically capture the richness of what is occurring in our projects?
  • How do we get our partners and other important stakeholders involved in monitoring our projects?
  • How do we integrate M&E into the project from the planning stage?
  • How do we decide what to monitor and evaluate?
  • How can we notice, explain and respond to unexpected results?
