What we do

Monitoring systems

Good monitoring systems serve the result-oriented control of programmes/projects. A prerequisite for this is that the objectives of a programme/project are clearly defined and that it is clear how these objectives are to be achieved.

Good monitoring starts with the right planning

Good monitoring systems serve the result-oriented control of programmes/projects. A prerequisite for this is that the objectives of a programme/project are defined and that there is clarity as to how these objectives are to be achieved. Good monitoring therefore always starts with effect-oriented planning. Therefore, it is immanently important that monitoring and strategy processes go hand in hand.

 

Transparency increases the quality of work

We are convinced that if all participants know exactly why the programme/project is being carried out and why monitoring is so important, this will increase the quality of the work and contribute significantly to the achievement of the objectives. This motivates all participants to continue the dialogue on lessons learned.

 

Why Syspons?

 

A specific example

We were commissioned to develop an impact-oriented monitoring system for the funding area of a large German organisation in the field of higher education cooperation. In participative workshops we first developed impact structures and indicators for different programmes within the funding area. In an iterative process, we derived standard indicators from these, which could be used to make statements about the effects in different programmes in the funding area. Together with the client, we then developed processes for impact-oriented planning, monitoring and control in the programme cycle. Responsibilities were also defined between the sponsor and the recipient of the grant. Through the participatory development of the products, the employees of the organisation were now well versed in advising their partners in the planning and application of impact-oriented monitoring. As a result, the significance of the data collected in monitoring and reporting has increased significantly.
