Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
ICT for M&E – Enterprise Systems
Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA) and InsideNGO are pleased to announce a partnership to offer a 2015 monitoring and evaluation (M&E) webinar series.
Each quarter, a webinar highlighting a critical M&E topic will be presented by leading experts from VEGA and InsideNGO members. The webinars are free and open to anyone interested in discussing and learning about best practices in M&E. (Recorded versions of the webinars will be available to VEGA and InsideNGO members.)
This year’s hot topic in the international nonprofit community seems to be the use of information and communications technologies in support of monitoring and evaluation activities. What was once the domain of paper, Excel spreadsheets, and statistical analysis tools, has now exploded into a universe of possibilities with diverse solutions like mobile phones and mobile apps for data collection, data warehouses for aggregating and mapping data, and project / program / enterprise M&E systems.
Staff are doing their best to wade through the many options and resources available in order to decide which solutions are best for their organizations, but that process can be overwhelming.
During this webinar, we focus on Enterprise M&E systems and will tackle questions such as: How do you decide whether to build or buy? What’s appropriate for small, medium, and large organizations? What ongoing maintenance and support is required?
Join Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA), NPOKI, and a panel of iNGO staff as they discuss Enterprise M&E System options, strategies, and best practices.
