Episode 075: Project MonitoringMonitoring and Evaluation has been used by nongovernmental organizations for evaluating programs for decades. For the European Union, the United Nations, the World Bank and other development banks, it is embedded in their organizational processes. Many have even published toolkits to promote understanding and adoption. For projects, processes for monitoring progress are far less established. Therefore, it is of little surprise that the quality of those monitoring processes can vary widely. For projects quality means at a minimum timeliness, relevance, reliability, accuracy, usability and credibility. Unless monitoring processes demonstrate these characteristics, they are unlikely to improve performance and enhance accountability. Our interview guest Joy Gumz from Project Auditors ( has been working in the field of project auditing and project monitoring for quite some time. She wrote a paper titled "Why use a hammer when you need a wrench: Results-based monitoring and evaluation of projects" which she presented at the PMI® Global Congress in Budapest. Today, we discuss her findings.

We also introduce you to two helpful resources in the field of project monitoring and we announce the winner of our contest who will win one free license of the MPMM Project Methodology.
