Future Open Courses

Advanced Training Workshop in Results Measurement

Next Course: TBD 

This unique training workshop, held every two years, brings together experienced results measurement practitioners to share lessons learned, solve common problems, exchange practical approaches and build a supportive network. It has gained a reputation for empowering practitioners with cutting edge and yet practical tools and techniques in results measurement to improve programme management, impact and accountability.

The main theme of the 2023 workshop was assessing system change. Building on "A Pragmatic Approach to Assessing System Change," we further developed practical ways to assess system changes including changes in key dimensions of systems such as gender equality and inclusion, resilience and climate change adaptation which may be relevant based on a program’s specific context. The event combined training sessions on good practices and successful examples of assessing system change with workshop sessions where the field is still searching for practical approaches, particularly assessing complex dimensions of system change. Content was demand driven, based on interaction with participants in advance.

What participants said about the workshop:

"This was one of the most useful and insightful trainings I have attended. The participants had a lot to share."

"They (the cases) were really informative and choice and blend of cases was superb."

"Things discussed are detailed, realistic and useful."

"The systemic change session provided me with a broader vision on needed approach in my programme that we were not thinking about before."

"The sharing was great. And especially since most of the sessions were split into small units, this made it easy for everyone to contribute. The participants have a wealth of experience and this was very useful."

"The most helpful course I've taken in years (in fact, possibly ever)."
