Value for Money

We have been working on Value for Money since 2013, supporting organizations in developing their own understanding in line with the organizational values, principles and overall visions. We also have extensive experience developing methodologies and tools to help organizations analyse and demonstrate Value for Money to their key stakeholders. We have particular expertise of the design and implementation of participatory Value for Money analysis tools which enable key community actors to have a voice.

Monitoring and Evaluation

We support organizations to develop user-centred Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) systems. We work closely with programme leads to tailor the M&E approach to the specific needs of organizations, provide training to local partners and ensure the systems are fit for purpose. We have recently been working on M&E approaches based on Outcome Harvesting to foster organizational and programmatic learning and improve impact. We also provide evaluation services, assessing programmes to understand the change they generated and identify usable recommendations that organizations can implement to improve programme quality. We use a variety of methodologies, often combining a range of them to ensure that the analytical frameworks address the evaluation questions appropriately. We have particular expertise in participatory methodologies.

Training and Facilitation

We are experienced trainers and facilitators. We provide tailored training to meet organizations needs and maximize the learning outcomes. We also develop Training of Trainers when needed, using innovative methodologies in a sustainable way. We deliver training on a variety of topics, including Value for Money, basic and advanced Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and on specific M&E methodologies, such as Outcome Harvesting, Most Significant Change and others. In addition, we have strong facilitation expertise and support organizations to deliver meetings and workshops on strategic planning, mid-terms reviews, results analysis.
