RESULTS-BASED MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING
A Four-Day Training For Project And Program Managers, M&E Staff, Project Teams & Development Consultants
Design & Monitor Humanitarian & Community Development Projects That Get Results & Attract Donor Support
- How Confident Are You That Your Projects Are Relevant And On-Target?
- Do You Know What To Do At Each Step Of The Planning Process?
- And How Do We Ensure M&E Is Carried Out Smoothly, So The Project Stays On-Track?
A Poorly Planned Project Will Always Fail To Deliver
Successful projects have to meet stakeholder needs and align to donors’ interests. It’s a balancing act.
And they need to be built around a logical chain of results.
If we don’t get the planning right, a project will miss the mark from the start. It can promise results that cannot be delivered, or fail to achieve its full potential.
Poor Monitoring Leads To Poor Decisions
So how do we ensure that our team consistently collects data on the right things using the right methods at the right time?
Without a comprehensive M&E plan, projects will always go off track. That means outcomes not achieved, chasing after data and extra cost to the project.
Communities Lose Out, Donors Become Dissatisfied And Project Teams Pull In Different Directions
It’s a simple fact that a well-designed and well-monitored project will get better results. That means:
- Better outcomes for target groups;
- Better value for donors; and
- Teams that work together more effectively.
And while RBM has been a top priority of the United Nations and other donor agencies since 2005, many organisations are still planning and monitoring projects in the same old way.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Attrib. Albert Einstein
A RESULTS-BASED APPROACH
Imagine being able to consistently deliver projects that achieve real, measurable results.
The kind of results that address the needs of communities and stakeholders, and align with your donors’ strategic objectives.
Imagine having an M&E plan in place, from the very start, so that you can measure progress towards those results. The whole team know what they are doing; data collected flows to where it is needed – when it is needed; and managers can make those vital decisions that steer a project to a successful outcome.
Results-Based Management gives us a framework to:
- Better plan interventions that create positive, measurable outcomes for stakeholders
- Meet donor requirements for relevance, effectiveness and value-for-money
- More easily track progress and steer projects towards success
- Get your project teams working together more efficiently towards a common purpose
The result? A reputation for success as a team that creates positive, measurable change for communities.
“RBM is not a tool – it is a mindset, a way of working that looks beyond processes and activities, to focus on the actual social and economic benefits of projects for beneficiaries.”
ABOUT THIS TRAINING
This hands-on course will teach you how to:
- Apply the Results-Based Management philosophy and principles to drive highly impactful community results
- Use the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) to easily design, monitor and evaluate humanitarian and community development projects
- Use RBM and LFA in a collaborative way to consistently deliver a high level of positive, measurable change that will keep your stakeholders and donors satisfied
CLEAR, STRAIGHTFORWARD, PRACTICAL LEARNING
This is a practical course.
We’ve limited the number of participants to just 12 to ensure maximum participation and learning. While you will get all the theory you need, we want you to learn the steps and tools in a way that you can apply time after time after the course is over.
This means working in small teams creating your own project from scratch – from problem identification through designing the project right through to building the M&E plan.
We know development practice can often be very confusing. We aim to take current best-practice and explain it in the most clear way possible – cutting through to what’s important in ways you can understand and apply.
WHAT’S IN THE COURSE?
You will learn a step-by-step method you can use every time to identify, plan and monitor projects.
This practical course will teach you how to:
- Design your own results-based project from start to finish
- Build a Monitoring & Evaluation plan so everyone knows what they are doing
We will apply the key steps of RBM / M&E planning in a focused way that allows for maximum practical work.
The steps we will follow are:
- Introduction, Objectives And Expectations
- What Is RBM?
- The Logical Framework Approach In RBM
- Context Analysis
- Problem Analysis
- Stakeholder Analysis And Engagement
- Setting Objectives
- Defining A Strategy
- Building The Logical Framework
- Results-Based M&E
- Building The M&E Plan
Other sessions may be added depending on participants’ needs and expectations.
You can expect a range of methods – presentations, group discussion, problem-solving tasks, case studies and – most importantly – practical exercises. Bring a laptop if you can – we have some software for you that will take your project planning skills to the next level.
And, unlike most other courses, we don’t leave you to ‘get on with it’ once the course is over. We know a lot of questions can come up once you are back in the world and actually applying the skills you learn.
That’s why we also give you:
- A free one-year membership of the ELD PROFESSIONALS FORUM. Here you can:
- Ask questions and share work done long after the course is over
- Join WEEKLY LIVE VIDEO SESSIONS where you can interact with the trainer and other participants
All participants also get free lifetime access to our ONLINE RBM TRAINING COURSE – here you will find videos of all the key sessions for reference, all downloadable and yours to keep.

WELCOME FROM INSTRUCTOR NEIL KENDRICK
Hi – and thanks for checking out this course!
For over 20 years, I’ve been helping development professionals like you get better results for their projects and beneficiaries, keeping their donors happy in the process.
Through my experience as a global trainer and consultant, I’ve developed this practical, step-by-step workshop for aspiring RBM / M&E professionals like you. With my guidance, you’ll soon be able to:
- Deliver the best possible outcomes for your stakeholders
- Keep getting support from your donors for the great work you are doing
- Focus your teams on creating positive, measurable change
I’ve run this particular workshop over several years in places like Addis Ababa, Manchester, Kathmandu, Istanbul, Yangon and Bangkok – each time making it more relevant, concise and practical. I’ve trained big INGOs such as Save the Children, Care and Oxfam, bilaterals including DFID, USAID and SNV, and multilateral donors like UNICEF, UNHCR and UNDP and from my worldwide experience you’ll quickly learn what works and what doesn’t.
So join me now, on this journey to real impact for your communities and stakeholders!

“As a result of the training RBM is now our in-house tool for project evaluation and appraisal and we mainstream RBM in all our 37 project offices across Nigeria. Neil opened my eyes to critical issues of linking activities to results and impacts, and his ability to deconstruct and demystify M&E made the training a life-changing experience.”

“The training is a ‘must’ for project planning and implementation and will have a positive impact.”
RELIEF INTERNATIONAL, TURKEY
“The course is well-structured and covers everything from situation analysis to project outline and objectives. The training is very interactive and motivating. Working in groups with people from different countries, organisations and sectors meant that even during coffee breaks we kept on exchanging ideas on how to apply the learning in our own professional work!”
“The training helped me to improve my knowledge on how to develop social projects more efficiently. The course provides good learning on how to develop projects/programs with better performance and greater accountability by applying a clear logical framework to plan, manage and measure an intervention with a focus on the results you want to achieve.”
