A training and knowledge sharing event to explore the value Outcome Mapping can add to monitoring and evaluation in complex programmes.
Over a decade after its creation, Outcome Mapping continues to attract practitioners around the world – from grassroots development professionals to international donors. In particular, there has been a growth in the use of OM for supporting monitoring, evaluation, and learning systems, yet OM is still seen by some as a newcomer in this area.

The OM Lab 2014 is a three-day event organised by the Outcome Mapping Learning Community (OMLC). It is for development practitioners, managers and funders and monitoring and evaluation professionals. It will offer you opportunities for learning about how OM can help better understand complex, developmental change and will give you advice and support for overcoming the measurement and management challenges you currently face in complex contexts.

The event will include a range of sessions aimed at different skill levels, so whether you are completely new to OM or an experienced user, you will be able to build your knowledge, hone your skills and share your current challenges and innovations.

Introductory and intermediate skill-building workshops, case study presentations, panel and plenary sessions involving leaders from the field and emerging practitioners alike will meet a range of capacity needs, as well as bring all participants together to discuss, challenge and plan ways forward on their OM-infused M&E approaches.

The cost of this event is subsidised through financial support from KPMG Africa International Development Advisory Services (IDAS) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and in-kind donations from the volunteer OMLC Stewards.
