Definition monitoring
Definition - monitoring development

Monitoring: is the regular observation and recording of activities taking place in a programme. It is a process of routinely gathering information on all aspects of the activity.

It is like watching where you are going while riding a bicycle; you can adjust as you go along and ensure that you are on the right track

Definition review
Definition - review development

Review: to lookback upon; view retrospectively

Definition evaluation
Definition - evaluation development

Evaluation: is the assessing and judging the value of a piece of work, an organisation or a service. Its main purpose is to help an organisation reflect on what it is trying to achieve, assessing how far it is succeeding, and identify required changes.
