Monitoring & Evaluation
 Is a management tool for ensuring or determining
effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability.
 It has continuously been improving over time
 From traditional M&E to Results based M&E
 In Kenya, M&E was pursued in Ernest from 2004
during the ERS period and now in the vision 2030
period
Definations
• Monitoring- Is
a Continuous function,
• Uses systematic methods for collection of data
on specified indicators
• Evaluation - Systematic and objective
assessment of an on-going or completed project,
programme or policy (including its design,
implementation and results).
Foundation for M&E
 For M&E to be effective, it must approach issues by a
specific logic
 Is this basic logic that allows the tool to identify facts
possibly hidden to a casual eye and allow directing
on what should be.
 This is the logic that we intended to get effected
through technology.
(Logframe)
 Is a tool for improving the planning,
implementation, management, monitoring and
evaluation of policies, programmes and projects.
 It is a way of structuring the main elements and
highlighting the logical linkages between them.
 It helps to identify the expected causal links in the
results chain, i.e., inputs + processes – outputs –
outcomes - impact
What can we use it for?
Improving quality of project and program designs by:
■ Summarizing design of complex activities.
■ Assisting the preparation of detailed operational plans.
■ Providing a base for activity review, monitoring, and
evaluation.
ADVANTAGES:
■ Ensures that decision-makers ask fundamental questions and
analyze assumptions and risks.
■ Calls for increased engagement of stakeholders in the planning
and monitoring process.
■ When used dynamically, is an effective management tool to
guide implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
Cont’
DISADVANTAGES:
■ If managed rigidly, stifles creativity and
innovation.
■ Training and follow-up are often required.
NOTE:
 Presentation of the Logframe is usually in a vertical
and Horizontal flow
Vertical Logic
Tests whether the sum of activities and lower
level results is sufficient to achieve the higher
level results. i.e
 Are all the activities listed under a particular
output statement sufficient to achieve the
output?
 Will all outputs listed under a particular
outcome be sufficient to achieve the planned
outcome?
 Will the outcomes listed under a strategic result
(Goal) be sufficient to achieve the strategic
result?
Risk in Vertical logic
 There remains a risk that our assumptions
at planning stage could be wrong, e.g. for a
conference, Invite 50 people, book a venue,
bring facilitators etc does this really mean
we have achieved the target of holding a
conference!. ……….. Why?
 The Log frame identifies such critical
planning assumptions in order to reduce
the risk of failure.

Main Benefit
 When used dynamically, is an effective
management tool to guide implementation,
monitoring and evaluation.
 Only a complete causal analysis will lead to a
results framework that would ensure results are
achieved and that development partners can
identify their roles.
Application of Logframe in the system
The M&E Module
 In view of the need to monitor the realization of
outcomes at the national level, and by fact that this
are closely related to implementation of projects a
relation is established between the projects and the
targets set at various levels of results i.e output and
outcome levels as illustrated.
