Monitoring and Evaluation
For logisticians, monitoring and evaluation may be defined as follows:
Monitoring: to review on a continuous basis the degree to which the logistics activity is completed and if targets are being met. This allows corrective actions to be taken.
Evaluation: to analyse progress towards meeting established objectives and goals. It is done on an ad hoc, monthly, quarterly or yearly basis. Evaluation provides feedback on whether plans have been met and the reasons for success or failure. It should also provide direction for future plans.
Together monitoring and evaluation provide the basis for performance management. Another key to performance management is aligning performance metrics to the goals and objectives of the program.
Aligning performance metrics ensures the M&E is targeted and does not disrupt the program.
Without alignment you do not know what to monitor or how to evaluate it.
