Design and Assistance to the Implementation of a «Results-Based Management and Evaluation System of Development Effectiveness


Results-based management (RBM), also known as performance management, has been adopted by many governments and donor agencies to provide a coherent framework for learning and accountability in a decentralized environment. First a management system and second a performance reporting system, RBM supports the on-going corporate transition from an annual budget exercise to a strategy-driven corporate planning cycle, and from an internal management focus on inputs and outputs to an outward-looking orientation centered on achieving results through partnerships. RBM emphasizes development effectiveness and accountability, in line with the demands of the new external environment. It supports a culture focusing on results on the ground, greater transparency and participation, shying away from inputs, and processes, to outputs, outcomes, and ultimate impacts.
