This post is one of four primary posts that discuss program or project monitoring for community development projects. Links to the other three posts are given below. If you search “monitoring” on this site you will find a number of other posts on different aspects of monitoring. I welcome your comments that will help me understand this important topic at a deeper level.
A description of my approach to project monitoring is given in the post, “Introduction to Project Monitoring.” Click LINK. You may want to read that post before this one. A summary of the key points in the “Introduction…” post is given in this post on creating a project monitoring system.
In this post I describe the features of a monitoring system, monitoring procedure and a monitoring plan. My objective is to provide a coherent view of the different aspects of monitoring. Click Creating Monitoring System to read the PDF document.
