Consultancy work to support OPCW

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was created in 1997 to oversee the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), and recently, following on from the experience of two ima tailor-made trainings on Results Based Management, OPCW hired IMA International in a consultancy to support the development of a Results Based Management (RBM) system.  

The origins of RBM came with a realization that a move to outcomes could only be fully achieved where organizational support functions were all aligned with, and supportive of, the operational core.  RBM is now seen as a question of shifting organizational culture. An RBM approach is made up of an M&E plan, an M&E system and an enabling results structure and culture. To begin this process at OPCW materials such as branch logic models, developed by IMA during the earlier trainings, were used as a starting point to build an understanding of stakeholder involvement, and of the historical development and current status of RBM in OPCW. This began the process of fully fledged Logical Framework development, for an RBM system. Interviews with key staff members helped to understand the complex realities of implementing a system in a large organisation.

 And How and Where and Who."
