  • Emphasize and explain this from the warning box on page 50.
  • Use this table with key M&E clients to help capture decisions on which M&E tools will go into your project’s “M&E toolkit”
  • And, possibly, the staff from the program under which your project sits or other CARE country office and organizational initiatives
  • -Will the tool capture data with the right degree of accuracy to meet M&E client expectations? -Who will use the tool and do they have the capacity and time to apply it effectively? -Will the data collected with the tool complicate or simplify the analysis process? -Does the M&E system have the resources and capabilities to use the data in meaningful ways?
  • Since these are not simple questions it is important to engage other M&E staff as well as senior staff in the country office in this decision making process.

    • 2. GETTING STARTED1May 22, 2012
    • 3. GETTING STARTED2May 22, 2012
    • 4. GETTING STARTED The tools we consider must be the simplest way of meeting the data needs of our priority M&E clients within our resource and capability constraints.3May 22, 2012
    • 5. GETTING STARTED Just because you can write it down does not mean you can make it happen!4May 22, 2012
    • 6. MATERIALS / INPUTS RECOMMENDED Market Engagement Indicator Information Sheet Measurement tools and processes used by other CARE projects in the CO and/or partner organizations Measurement tools and processes used by CARE programs in the CO Information on any donor- required tools Secondary information sources5May 22, 2012 for related indicators

    • 9. STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE: STEP 1 Two options to complete Step1:1. Filter your Market Engagement Indicator Information Sheet by indicator type (measurement, observation)2. Create a separate table like the one below: Expected Observation Measurement Change Indicator Data Collection Tool Indicator Data Collection Tool8May 22, 2012

    • 11. STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE: STEP 2 This process will require input from field staff, project managers, implementing partners as well as other key M&E clients that will actively use this information.10May 22, 2012
    • 12. STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE: STEP 2 COMPLETING STEP 2• Have a dedicated meeting to agree on criteria for the tools. Consider the following: • Tools or practices from other initiatives • Set the expectation that field staff and implementing partners will be helping to co-design the data collection tools. • Develop a participatory approach to develop field staff and implementing partner ownership. • Facilitate the discussions, capture the outputs and define the process for finalizing the tools – which will likely require several meetings!11May 22, 2012

    • 16. STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE: STEP 4 Take a step back and ask the following questions: 1. Will the combination of tools we have identified allow us to meet the needs of the priority clients of the M&E system? 2. Based on our resources and capabilities assessment, can we apply and manage all of these tools effectively?15May 22, 2012

    • 19. COMMON PITFALLS •M&E system designers lose sight of the diverse needs of M&E clients leading to tools that only meet the needs of the most obvious or powerful interests – typically donors. •Projects focus disproportionately on traditional information gathering methods (periodic, formal, quantitative methods applied to large samples) and fail to utilize ad hoc, less formal, qualitative, and rapid assessment methods. •M&E system designers focus on proving that our project caused a particular change (attribution) instead of considering whether an M&E system designed to demonstrate how we contributed to change might be more appropriate given our needs and our resources.18May 22, 2012
