Results-Based Management Handbooks, Guides & Tools

 ​​These websites have a variety of tools, opinions and news of potential relevance to people wanting to improve RBM skills:

  • The Cambodia Ministry of Planning's Monitoring And Evaluation: An Approach To Strengthen Planning In Cambodia [PDF - about 2 MB] is not revolutionary but it is a good, solid primer for line agencies on how to integrate Results-Based Management in national planning. It deserves a wider audience, but was originally buried deeply in some arcane and difficult to find location on the Ministry of Planning website. [See review]

  • The World Resources Institute's Governance of Forests Initiative (GFI) Guidance Manual, (you will find it in the upper left-hand corner of that web page) contains a large number of indicators, and guidance on collecting data about governance in general, much of it applicable other issues, aside from forest management. [See review]


  • Working Across Translation, Suzie LeBlanc's short, eloquent argument for clear language in cross-cultural communication, written in September 2013, could easily be applied to anyone working in results-based management.

​Donor Agency RBM, Planning & Evaluation Websites

Audio Podcasts available for listening, that are relevant to results-based management and indicator development:

The donor agencies' websites vary in quality, and they do not always implement their own results-based management guidelines, but if you are working with them, it is wise to know how the different agencies, at least in theory, approach results-based management.  This page is updated regularly, but the links sometimes expire as the agencies archive their old material.  If that happens, a search for the title can often find them in other locations.
