Outlines the principles of 'Outcome Mapping' a method developed by IDRC to assess impact of development work. The approach recognises that the impact of an organisations work is difficult to disentangle from the range of other factors influencing development in a particular place. It focuses on the effect the development project or organisation has on the behaviour, relationships, activities and actions of key people and partners it works with, or that are within its sphere of influence. It begins with a workshop to design a programme and monitoring system, followed by a series of self-assessment workshops to monitor change and refine strategies
