​As a monitor, evaluator, and RBM trainer, Greg Armstrong applies basic concepts of adult learning and the implementation of change to the ways in which ideas -- such as Results-Based Management --  can be communicated and effectively applied in the practical world of day-to-day project management.  His goal is to liberate the results which development professionals are achieving, from the discouraging morass of bureaucratic jargon that makes results reporting seem impossible.

As a Results-Based Management specialist, Greg Armstrong focuses on clarifying the way we think about results, to enable practitioners in all fields -- the real experts -- to recognize and have confidence in the depth of their own understanding, and in the process, to themselves identify results, define and trace performance indicators, to explain in clear terms the results they are achieving or want to achieve
