There has been a recent upsurge of interest in Theories of Change. Donors are increasingly requiring grantees to provide ToCs to accompany their proposals. Those organisations who have already developed a Theory of Change 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 new course provides an opportunity to understand and explore what Theories of Change are; how they complement other planning processes; how they can be applied to organisations and to programmes. The course enables participants to consider the steps they need to take in developing a Theory of Change for their own organisation/ programme; and offers an opportunity to experiment with developing elements of a Theory of Change on the course.
Objectives of the course:
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe what ToCs involve and include and the rationale for using them
- Identify how and when they should be developed and how they complement other planning tools
- Define steps and processes for developing ToCs
Participants will have:
- Experimented with developing elements of a ToC
- Discussed ways to promote and develop robust ToCs within their own organisation
This course is suitable for senior programme managers and those involved in the design and implementation of M&E and Impact Assessment. In order to make the most of this course, we encourage organisations to consider sending more than one participant to this course.
