It was a great relief to read that we would probably be able to give a pretty good assessment of the progress and impact of the work we are doing. It all sounds a lot less daunting now.

Praxis Series Collection - 3 books - Sharpening the Development Process / Capacity Building for NGOs / Capacity Building Framework
The Praxis Series is a set of easily accessible handbooks providing simple explanations of concepts as well as models and tools. The guides draw together an overview of current thinking, an analysis of diverse practitioner experiences and commissioned case studies and research.
Sharpening the Development Process
This book provides a detailed introduction to the process of developing monitoring and evaluation systems which will provide a foundation on which to develop personal and organisational learning. It is based on INTRAC's research, consultancy and training work and is rooted in real experiences. The guide will enable people who have limited experience of M&E to grasp its core concepts, and to apply them to the development of an M&E system.
Capacity Building for NGOs
Ideal for anyone interested in capacity building with NGOs and other civil society organisations - providing an overview of trends and current thinking about NGO capacity building, the challenges and constraints. It also addresses why, despite all our knowledge and experience, capacity building interventions commonly fail to meet expectations. This book is about what works in practice and how best to ensure our investment in capacity building is timely, appropriate and successful. It argues that not only is effective capacity building possible but it can also have a real and tangible impact.
Capacity Building Framework
The design and implementation of successful capacity building programmes involves a range of complex processes and considerations. This practical guide draws on INTRAC's experience in capacity building consultancy and programme work and on its successful international training in capacity building. It adopts a step-by-step approach to the subject and introduces a new values-based model to enable decision makers to plan capacity-building interventions in a variety of contexts.
