Training in the application of results-based management (RBM) for development projects and programs is one of Baastel’s specialties. At Baastel, we have extensive experience in providing support to implementing agencies wishing to convert the management of their projects or programs to a results-based model. In carrying out these assignments, we assess the situation and reformulate the agency’s objectives using the RBM vocabulary for developing a logical framework for benchmarking, determining results indicators, risk assessment and performance measurement. We are highly skilled at adapting RBM to different levels of management and have the know-how for designing specific RBM tools for use at the project level. Through the support offered by Baastel, implementing agencies achieve greater autonomy and are able to use RBM for their project/program monitoring and evaluation needs.
The concepts of RBM are applicable to many facets of an institution. Baastel excels at efficiently and effectively completing evaluations of institutional capacity to focus management efforts towards achieving tangible results. Skill levels to be achieved by personnel, financial objectives, optimization of database information and the development of functional, smart monitoring and evaluation systems are all part of the process. Baastel uses institutional mapping to measure efficiency and effectiveness and then proposes solutions and directions for improving management results or conversely, demonstrates the achievement of these results using RBM tools.
Over the years, Baastel has become established as a leader in capacity building among NGOs, international organizations and various ministries in many countries. International development and climate change adaptation programs are increasingly organized using the RBM philosophy, whose guiding principles are becoming more and more standardized. Thus, understanding RBM is essential for all players in areas as diverse as the design and management of development projects, cash flow control, answering to donor agencies and minimizing project risks. And all this using a simple vocabulary and presentation that is adapted to the evolving realities in the milieu. At Baastel we offer superior training services, delivered by experts with extensive teaching experience, who know how to tailor courses to our clients’ needs.
RBM has numerous benefits when properly implemented for project or program management. One such benefit is systematic data collection which allows for ongoing measurement of change over time. Baastel offers training in RBM that uses a template for writing RBM reports based on simple but effective principles. When they have completed their training, participants are in a position to use data collected in the field to measure progress towards the desired results and convert this information into a narrative report.
