    • Any other concerns

Your motivations

    • Compare your conclusions from previous discussion

    • And identify why you do what you do.

    ‘Accountability and learning: developing monitoring and evaluation in the third sector.’ (Ellis with Gregory for CES, 2009,)


Decision support tool

Decision Support Tool

Our starting point was

Our starting point was...

  • http://www.proveandimprove.org/new/

  • Best we could find but there’s no comprehensive list. (eg social capital is an odd omission. )

  • Constantly new tools – funders, intermediaries, niche needs.

  • Different versions of P&I – including the ‘dart board’


How do we want to proceed

How do we want to proceed?

  • want to look at a particular tool in detail

  • want to compare and contrast a couple of tools

  • want to work through a longer list


As you do your initial review please note

As you do your initial review, please note:

  • Why its caught your attention.

  • Ways in which it does and does not address your needs.

  • Costs & Benefits.

  • Drivers & Barriers.

  • You have about 40 mins


Next steps

Next steps

  • How can you take this work forward?

  • If its a conversation – Content? Participants? additional information?

  • If its an action - what resources, including time, do you need? Have you got them? If not how will you get them?

  • SMART? and a check on that?


Thanks very much

Thanks very much...
