Value Adding of Outcome Mapping in ACCESS Phase II


Summary: ACCESS Phase II systems approach recognised that improved local governance changes required multiple actors (individuals, groups and organisations) to change the way they relate to each other and their environment in order to promote transparency, accountability and inclusive public participation. Outcome Mapping (OM) helped ACCESS’ civil society partners to plan and monitor activities that would bring about the necessary behaviour changes. This paper documents the relevance and contribution of OM with its focus on behaviour change as program outcomes. Based on interviews with CSOs and secondary data, the paper reflects how OM has promoted open dialogue and critical thinking; helped to focus on the strategic roles of each actor as change agents and promoted enthusiasm, commitment and determination through creatig a shared vision. Challenges in using OM included resistance from those who favoured log frame approaches, allocating time and resources for capacity building on OM and combining OM with donor needs for quantitative impact measurements.
