Outcome Mapping Practitioner Guide

Evaluation & OM

With respect to evaluation, Outcome Mapping was initially intended for programme managers to clarify why an evaluation would be needed, who needs it and what the focus should be on, according to the defined use and users of the evaluation.  These are good lines of questioning for evaluators as well.  OM was not intended as a tool for designing and conducting an evaluation, but as a guidance note, to then be used with other methods.
