Practical Monitoring and Evaluation: A guide for voluntary organisations

This popular and comprehensive guide to monitoring and evaluation in the voluntary sector, first published in 2002, is now in its third edition. It has a revised further reading list, and text additions which acknowledge the recent shifts in the policy and funding context and developments in monitoring and evaluation software and other resources.

This comprehensive guide is written in accessible plain English and focuses throughout on what is practical.

It covers:

  • introduction to terminology
  • introduction to basic concepts and theory
  • tools for project management, from needs analysis and planning through to review, but focusing on evaluation
  • practical advice on where to go for further guidance on the various steps, methods etc.

'Dynamic, effective organisations put learning and developing at the heart of their development strategy, and advice and guidance on monitoring is invaluable in helping them do so. So I’m delighted to welcome the third edition of Practical monitoring and evaluation.'

Dame Suzi Leather, Chair of the Charity Commission

'I would encourage any voluntary organisation that is committed to improving its work to use this guide. The sector is under increasing scrutiny from the public, the government and funders – particularly in our role in delivering public services. There has never been a more important time for the sector to demonstrate its effectiveness. I am sure that this guide will continue to play an important part in helping us do this.'

Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive, National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Charities Evaluation Services merged with NCVO on the 1st November 2014.
