What happens after your program's strategy has been designed?
How do you know whether you've been successful in implementing the
strategies you planned? Although monitoring and evaluation (M and E)
systems are essential to measuring results, making and keeping these
systems functional has been a longstanding development challenge.
Making Monitoring and Evaluation Systems Work will not only help
you build functional M and E systems, but also provide you with the
tools and concepts for helping others build their systems.
In Trinidad, we used the 12-component model as a diagnostic
framework to assess capacity building needs to improve our national
health monitoring and evaluation system. We evaluated our own system
against each of the 12 components to determine where we are today, and
where we need to be to better be able to monitor and manage HIV/AIDS
and other health issues in our country. We appreciate this simple, yet
comprehensive model and plan to continue to use it in our M&E
capacity building plans.

The training I undertook on the 12 components has come in very
useful. I am developing a course on Results-based M&E in Ireland,
and am also using the framework to develop M&E plans and frameworks
for a number of organizations, including Barnardos, UCC, and the
Ministry of Resources and Rural Development in Malta and the Hope
Foundation in Calcutta. This is the most practical program I have ever
been exposed to on monitoring and evaluation and I intend to
incorporate its principles in my work going forward.

On its way toward development, it is imperative for Turkey to
pull different systems together in a logical way: to make systems talk
to each other. The 12 components provided different public sectors-from
transport to agriculture, health to education with a way of commonly
communicating about their M&E systems, understand linkages, and
even plan joint activities. It enables someone who wants to make a
career out of M&E to learn about one sectors 12-component M&E
system and to apply this learning in another sector. The 12 components
made me see how the pieces of our M&E system fit together.
