About Jan Van Ongevalle

I am working as research manager of the international development cooperation unit at the Research Institute of Work and Society (HIVA) linked to the University of Leuven in Belgium. After having been a steward of the outcome mapping learning community (2008 to early 2012), I am now an advisor to the stewards. I support organisations in the development and implementation of their planning, montioring and evaluation (PME) systems using outcome mapping. I also provide training in outcome mapping. I work in English, French or Dutch.

Interest in OM

I am interested in OM because it provides a very useful project management approach which is learning based and actor centred. It also promotes active stakeholder participation in processes of planning, monitoring and evaluation. OM is therefore well adapted to deal with procesess of complex social change that are often not easy to predict and which do not follow a linear path.
I am also interested in OM because its very adaptable to your specific needs. In addition, you dont need to use all the steps and tools of the methodology. it is very possible to only use those parts or concpets that suit a specific context. Furthermore I am interested in OM because it allows you to enrich other planning, and monitoring approaches such as the logical framework, that are often made mandatory by donors.
