INTRAC Theory of Change Approaches to Planning and Impact Assessment - June 2014

There has been an increased interest in Theories of Change (ToCs) in the development sector. Some donors now require organisations to provide ToCs to accompany their proposals. Organisations who have already developed a ToC for their programmes have found that the process and the product can provide greater clarity for communication, planning and M&E; enhance partner relationships and support organisational development. This course gives participants an understanding of what ToCs are; how they complement other planning, evaluation and impact assessment processes; and how they can be applied in different organizational contexts and situations. Knowledge and skills from this course can be applied to the development of Theory of Change approaches to planning, evaluation and assessing impact within programmes and organisations.<br>
This three day course offers a clear conceptual overview of ToC, taster sessions in developing different elements of a ToC, and provides tailored guidance on designing and facilitating ToC processes which respond directly to participants’ own identified needs.<br>
<b>Objectives of the course</b><br>
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:<br>
• Be able to describe what Theories of Change involve and the rationale for using them<br>
• Be able to identify how and when they should be developed and how they inform and complement other approaches to planning, evaluation and impact assessment<br>
• Have increased confidence in working through the steps and processes involved in developing and using Theories of Change <br>
• Have explored ways to facilitate and promote Theory of Change approaches within their own organisation.<br>
<b>Intended audience</b><br>
The course is designed for programme managers and those who are actively involved in planning, evaluating or assessing the impact of their programmes. Some prior familiarity with Theory of Change approaches is recommended. Where possible, we recommend that two or more individuals attend from one organisation.<br>
