Piloting of STED RBM and M&E in Malawi

Web page | 13 June 2017
The Results Based Management and M&E system is designed to standardize the methods and formats for collecting, analysing and reporting data on results in the Skills for Trade and Economic Diversification (STED), and using this as a basis for monitoring, learning and decision making throughout the process, and as an input into evaluation. The system also reflects the STED programme’s commitment to complying with the International Labour Organization (ILO) project cycle, also with aspects of the Donor Committee for Enterprise Development (DCED) Standard on Measuring and Reporting Results.

The STED Monitoring and RBM System consists of several elements: a mandate and logframe that sets out its goals and objectives, processes and methods that monitor implementation, reports that document what happened and why, and people trained in the application of the core processes and guidelines to set
operational performance standards.

In Malawi, the piloting of the RBM and M&E framework has been established for STED analytical and implementation interventions and updating is maintained.
  • STED Analytic Phase Monitoring: The project has developed the Measurement Guide Spreadsheet (MGS- STED Analytic Phase) for monitoring, measuring and managing results. this is an excel document with multiple worksheets. It is used primarily for STED internal purposes and is managed on a daily basis by the project staff.
  • STED-Guided Intervention Monitoring: The STED-guided Intervention Measurement Guide Spreadsheet (MGS STED-guided intervention) is a management tool developed to allow the STED team to outline the intervention strategy, show how it is expected to achieve mainstream systemic change, track progress, and test the intervention logic. The project has developed the MGS STED-guided intervention for monitoring, measuring and managing results. This is an excel document with multiple worksheets. It is used primarily for STED internal purposes and is managed on a daily basis by the project staff.
