11-05-2011 03:24

Since 2008, Room to Read's M&E system has included the collection of information on our Global Indicators (GIs) a combination of quantitative program accomplishments and program performance measures on all active projects that show progress towards our program objectives. This paper describes our experience in collecting, storing, analyzing, and reporting this information during the past three years: 2008: Developing a system for collecting, entering, cleaning, and analyzing indicator data; using multiple channels of communication between our headquarters and field offices. 2009: Getting definitions right; improving field-level ownership of data; streamlining communication with a single headquarters communication channel; explaining GI trends. 2010: Developing dashboards (online tools that show real-time performance and progress on key indicators) for communication of data quality issues; improving accountability for data timeliness and accuracy; comparing our internal program GIs with external data sources. The paper concludes with lessons learned and challenges going forward.
