  8. Advanced Level Training Workshop on Outcome and Impact Orientation
    KKID – Coimbatore, April 24th to 27th 2013

    We are pleased to inform you about the above mentioned workshop which we offer at the Karl Kübel Institute for Development Education, Coimbatore (www.kkid.org).

    Target group:
    Participants from organisations dealing with projects and programmes of development cooperation in all fields being responsible or involved in activities of project cycle management. Knowledge and experience of formalized planning procedures like logframe-planning and the use of project cycle management are essential

    Topic
    Practitioners face a lack of user-friendly and reliable tools and suitable guidelines and on the other hand, projects are asked to prove their success and demonstrate their changes. This workshop is one step to close this gap. The workshop is meant for people who have come in contact with outcome and impact monitoring and are willing to give it a try and see if it works for them.

    Objective
    • Participants understand the meaning and process of outcome and impact monitoring for their work.
    • Participants acquire skills to conduct outcome and impact monitoring independently.
    • Participants are in a position to increase the impact of their projects by practicing the monitoring methods
    • Participants will gain knowledge on the resources required to integrate outcome and impact monitoring systems during project design

    The schedule and the proposed outline are enclosed for your kind information. As workshop language will be English it is necessary that participants are fluent in the same.

    Contents
    The workshop introduce outcome and impact orientation in general terms and shares the procedure to start monitoring changes from the very beginning (its concept and guidelines). The project cycle and impact chains will be reviewed to have a common understanding by all participants for practical exercises during the workshop.

    The workshop will also share already field tested outcome and impact indicators and tools from self help groups and watershed development projects which could be useful for practitioners (experiences from the field). All sub group works will be carried out with concrete examples (case studies) and the practical exercises are in line with the general concept of outcome and impact orientation. The participants will be work with logrframes of their own projects and improve the same if wanted and needed.

    Anke Schuermann holds a Diploma in Nutritional Science and a Post-graduation in Rural Development. She brings on board 15 years of project management experience, 12 years out of which were spent in India. While she coordinated various complex poverty alleviation programmes across India, monitoring and evaluation of achievements and impacts was a core task together with Indian NGO partners.
