  6. 6. ZOPP and the Project Cycle GTZ - 5 ZOPP Stages <ul><li>Pre-project planning </li></ul><ul><li>Starting Appraisal : (Ex-Ante) in-house, prepare Terms of Reference </li></ul><ul><li>Partner Negotiation : coordinate conclusions and recommendations with staff of project in-country </li></ul><ul><li>Plan Finalization ( Take-off): in-country preparation of the plan of operations with personnel responsible for project execution and counterpart authorities. </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation and Monitoring </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation ( Replanning and ex-post): in-country; adjustments during project implementation, Review </li></ul>

  10. 10. 1. P r o b l e m Analysis <ul><li>Identify the major problem faced by the beneficiaries </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a problem tree </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the stakeholders affected in the proposed project </li></ul>
  11. 11. P r o b l e m Analysis <ul><li>Objectives Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Alternatives Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Strategies Analysis </li></ul>
  12. 12. Problem Tree <ul><li>A process of putting a lot of problems on cards, and then sorting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>causes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>effects </li></ul></ul><ul><li>By sorting these you will find a natural focal point (or points) – the core problem </li></ul><ul><li>Note: this is different to Visualisation in Participatory Processes where the core problem has already been identified </li></ul>
  13. 13. How to do problem analysis <ul><li>Identify key problems in a given situation (brainstorming) </li></ul><ul><li>Select a starter problem </li></ul><ul><li>Look for related problems to the starter problem </li></ul><ul><li>Establish hierarchy of causes and effects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>problems which are directly causing the starter problem are placed above (or below) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>problems which are direct effects of the starter problem are placed below (or above) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Complete with all other problems </li></ul><ul><li>Review the diagram </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the starter problem you chose the core problem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is it true and complete </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Problem Tree
  15. 15. 2. Stakeholder Analysis <ul><li>Consider appropriate level for analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Identify key stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Look at their needs, characteristics, circumstances </li></ul><ul><li>Identify patterns of interaction between stakeholders </li></ul><ul><li>Assess power (influence) and potential (importance) </li></ul>
  16. 16. Stakeholder Analysis: List Secondary Primary Participation Influence on project Importance to Project Key Interests Stakeholders
  17. 17. Stakeholder Analysis: List Example: School Attendance May be high Medium – depends on approach High – implementers? Their job, role, status Teachers Maybe small High – control children Have authority over the children Child’s future Parents Engaged at various stages Small – they do what they are told The target group Get work School Age Children Participation Influence on project Importance to Project Key Interests Stake-holders
  18. 18. Sort into groups <ul><li>Importance is how much a stakeholder stands to lose or gain from the project. </li></ul><ul><li>Influence is how much a stakeholder can affect project success. </li></ul><ul><li> Matrix </li></ul>
  19. 19. Stakeholder Analysis: Matrix Low Influence High Influence High Potential Significance or Importance Low Importance Influential stakeholders but with less importance for outputs. They affect outcome of activities and need careful management The interests of these should be monitored to ensure that they are not negatively affected Project Managers will need good working relationships with these stakeholders to ensure support for project activities May need special initiatives if needs are to be met. The Target Group should be here
  20. 20. Stakeholder Analysis: Matrix Example: School Attendance Project Low Influence High Influence High Potential Significance or Importance Low Importance Elders Monks Women’s Association Teachers Dept of Education Children
  21. 21. Take a Break
  22. 22. Exercise: Problem Tree & Stakeholder Analysis <ul><li>Choose a problem in the community </li></ul><ul><li>Divide in 2 groups </li></ul><ul><li>1. Do a problem tree </li></ul><ul><li>2. Do a stakeholder analysis matrix </li></ul>
  23. 23. 3. Objectives Analysis <ul><li>Change the Problem Tree into an Objectives Tree </li></ul><ul><li>Change the negative problems into positive outcomes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ no staff in clinic’ becomes “fully staffed clinic” </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Example: Problem Tree
  25. 25. Becomes: Objective Tree Sufficient Funds Best Practice Water Administration Low Rate of Disease Low Infant Mortality High Productivity High Incomes Low Infant Mortality High Incomes High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Best Practice Water Administration All Houses Connected Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Best Practice Water Administration Adequate Clean WATER Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes Sufficient Funds Good Water System Best Practice Water Administration Low Rate of Disease High Productivity Low Infant Mortality High Incomes MEANS ENDS DESIRABLE STATE If necessary, revise statements, delete objectives that appear unrealistic and add new objectives.
  26. 26. <ul><li>This is another sample of doing an analysis </li></ul><ul><li>It works on a problem already known </li></ul><ul><li>It is looking at the causes side only </li></ul>Objectives Analysis Example 2
