Course Overview

This course is designed and intended to lay emphasis on internal and external project evaluation and familiarise with tools that are used to measure and improve the performance of projects. The participants follow a step by step methodology for the understanding of the process of designing and performing an evaluation.

What is Impact Evaluation of Projects? Keeping an eye on the developments, deviations and changes after the delivery of projects is very important for any organization. Evaluation and Assessment of the impact and benefits delivered can not only help in fine-tuning the processes but also in setting standards for future projects.

It also involves several stages including determining a data set, organising the data for handling, applying evaluation models, deriving key findings and generating reports from the processed data. The main objective of data analysis is to discover understandings that can be used in more effective decision making.
