3 Main findings: The method found very useful Better quality project management Design problems considerably decreased High participation levels ensured Less disagreement among partners The investment worthwhile Widely applicable planning method

4 Conclusions from the reports: project level Activities designed and planned using PCM were more relevant, coherent, effective and efficient. Tools are best used from the start, and used consistently throughout. Monitoring and evaluation efforts are easier for project managers if the tools are used. Project managers ask for additional, timely training and support in applying PCM tools
