Outcome Mapping & its role in imGoats OM is a method/approach for P, M&E Focuses on behaviour changes in boundary partners; what Boundary Partners are doing differently and how their relationships with each other are changing OM involves identifying key changes (for each BP) that imGoats believes lie along the pathway to impacts (e.g., well-functioning value chain, increased producer incomes, favourable policy environment) In imGoats the main role envisioned for OM was to enable the gathering of timely monitoring data for project management and generate information relevant to evaluation P M E
Outcome Mapping & its purpose in imGoats OM is intended to help answer key Qs: At the design stage – Broadly speaking, what would total success look like? (Vision) – How can imGoats best support achievement of the vision? (Mission) – With whom are we working directly / intending to influence? (Boundary Partners) – Ideally, in order to contribute to the vision, how would the boundary partner be behaving? (Outcome statements) – What changes do we expect to see in BPs as a direct result of our efforts? What further changes would we like and love to see? (Progress Markers) During implementation – Are we on the right track towards the outcomes that we intend to contribute towards? (Monitoring) – What unexpected changes are occurring? – What changes in our strategies are needed in order to get on track? (Decision- making/project management) To enable/support evaluation – Well-documented evidence of change along credible pathways to expected impacts

Session Guidance: Key Q: How did we put OM into practice? Principles: – No right/wrong way…not an evaluation or a competition! – Our aim is to learn as much as possible from experience – Much interest in learning from creative uses of the methodology in the OM community Process: – Sit together in teams: Raj, Moz, Jar – Drawing on your team meetings last week, prepare a short presentation on how you put OM (or other monitoring) into practice (up to 50 mins; less is better, leaving more time for presentation and discussion) – Three presentations: Raj, Moz, Jar (max 25 mins each) using ≥1 presenters w/ flip charts, PPT, or other visuals (It’s up to you) – Tea break mid afternoon (Ewen keeping time) – Discussion (30 mins) – Sum up: Key points and emerging questions (volunteer, 5 mins) – Leave enough time (~10 mins) for a final non-OM activity at the end of the day
Session Guidance: Key Q: How did we put OM into practice? Principles: – Share the story of how your team put OM into practice – Leave the details of 1) what went well and less well ; 2) what you learned about changes in behaviour of boundary partners; and 3) what you would do differently in the future for upcoming sessions Qs that may help you tell your story: – What did you see as the role/importance of OM? Or… What did you do instead and why? – What modifications did you make to the progress markers (PMs) and why? – How did you plan to gather monitoring data (on PMs, if used) and what actually happened in practice? – How did you plan to manage and analyse the monitoring data (on PMs, if used) and what actually happened in practice?
