A crash course in changing the world.
Evoke Season II (Developing Skills – Monitoring and Evaluation of Implementation of solutions/innovative ideas)
Besides the Missions and Quests, the Social Innovation Class Season II should include some segment on developing skills. These skills should be discussed in a variety of ways by leaving a situation to analyze, developing different tools and managing the activity efficiently and effectively. Monitoring and Evaluation is also a management skill leading to make success stories.
In this dynamic world, We provide new and innovative solutions on different problems, but some the solutions are not well implemented because there remains a considerable gap between a innovator/solution provider and the implementer/problem solver and at the end impact is very low. In this situation Monitoring and Evaluation of different implementation is very important. It can help to analyze how well the idea is being implemented and if there is problem than innovators can timely intervene and improve the situation. It can be done through internal monitoring process, monitoring through the implementers and external monitoring, a monitoring through the stakeholders and beneficiary of the idea. The idea can also be evaluated after implementation through process evaluation or impact evaluation.
So, Monitoring and Evaluation can play very important role in track the progress and see the idea is on track or has gone off track.
