Project Results

Results achieved:

Result 1: The establishment and the effective utilisation of a first generation (pilot) of a Result Management System in the Ministry of Health and in the Ministry of Education. That system includes an acceptable set of indicators for monitoring and evaluation of results, a system to follow up and monitor these indicators, a feedback mechanism for learning and decision-making and a “quality check” mechanism to further refine the system itself.

Result 2: The creation and the development of an organisational culture – at all levels – that promotes result-focused thinking (institutional capacity development and organisational changes). This implies a shift from traditional procedure-oriented bureaucratic thinking to a results focused thinking that is responsive to client demands.
