InProgress provides guides for non-profits: monitoring and evaluation.
A number of Monitoring & Evaluation initiatives are listed in Actor Atlas Initiative Books. The interactions concerning the Monitoring & Evaluation of Operations at a certain sociotechnical level (macro, meso, micro, pico) may be included in this dictionary, for example:
- Universal Periodic Review (on human rights) organized within the United Nations system, with per Member State, Periodic Review.
Material and Content Scope
The interface to the material stratum is limited, in this realm the focus is on the content life cycle.
Economies of reuse (reusing content via social web solutions) and scope (much content can be easily navigated, analysed, and experimented with (simulation)).
Collective or Individual Action
Too little collective action would increase costs of roundabout activities while reducing the diffusion of best practices: if peers measure different properties and performances, how could investments be allocated efficiently, or how could they practice benchmarking? And how to avoid that competitive pressures on price harm quality and service levels? In the monitoring and evaluation realm important synergies can be achieved by collective approaches.
