This five day practical workshop gives you a thorough understanding of the principles and practice of RBM. You identify what needs to be put in place or improved in your own organisation and go on to develop a strategy to achieve that.

Why choose this course

It is for people responsible for developing RBM in their organisation or large complex programmes. So it is useful for strategic planners, heads of M&E as well as senior programme managers. It is especially good if two or more people take part from the same organisation. This course attracts participants from government and inter-governmental agencies; national and international NGOs; and social enterprises. Our facilitators ensure you have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experience with people from your own as well as other sectors.

What you will learn

The workshop focuses on the needs of participants' own organisations. IMA's model of RBM, developed and refined through years of practitioner experience and applied research, is used to examine the components parts of RBM including:

  • Theory of Change and strategic results framework
  • a risk register
  • integrated monitoring and evaluation
  • the use of evidence from monitoring and evaluation in decision-making
  • meaningful reporting to key stakeholders.

  • The connections between the parts are mapped, and key features of a results culture identified, to show how the system should work as a unified whole. Key success factors are explored. Participants then use the model to identify strengths, weaknesses and gaps in their own RBM systems and cultures; and with hands-on facilitation from IMA experts, develop a strategy to address their priorities.
