Training: Results-Based Project Management


Results-Based Project Management

Managing lasting results in the new reality of international cooperation

Why this course?

During the last decade, results-based management (RBM) has gained much influence in planning programmes for social impact. Still many organisations struggle to plan for real, impactful results with the accompanying processes and tools. RBM has consequences for the entire organisation: for project planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning. Learning how to design a solid RBM framework - in various forms – is a good first step to integrate RBM in your organisation and programmes.

  • Learn RBM in a changing context (e.g. SDGs, private sector involvement, conflict situations)
  • Learn various methods for designing results (for example: Theory of Change, Stakeholder Analysis, Appreciative Inquiry, Outcome Mapping)
