Management per-result approach to design of international development projects.
Gatineau, Université du Québec en Outaouais, Département des sciences administratives, 138 p.
This study sets out an approach to designing development projects using the "management-per-result" technique that belongs to the "quick and dirty" group of methods (Hubbard, 2000, pp. 386, 395). Its purpose is to reinforce the project design function of Results Based Management (RBM) through establishing costs and/or benefits of specific results, outlining the linkages between RBM and Results Based Budgeting (RBB). In such way RBM, which is too focused on the old paradigm of demonstrating results, can be better reoriented toward the new paradigm of managing for results. While management of results in RBM has stronger positions in monitoring and evaluation, the project design phase has much weaker positions in it that sets out a lot of projects on an unclear path as to what they exactly are expected to deliver and at what cost. The study adds new features to the logical framework approach by introducing a practically applicable project design tool. Those features are the linkage between RBM and RBB, and attribution of costs and benefits to specific project results.
The paper starts off with outlining deficiencies of international developmental project management and advocates the need to apply the "management-per-result" approach to project design by focusing on the financial management aspect of each of the project results designed. The "management-per-result" approach to project design is introduced as one of the possible performance management solutions at the project design level and applied to the real-life project. The WHO feasibility study of water and sanitation improvements at the global level is used for the verification purposes of the "management-per-result" approach.
The approach adds new features to the logical framework approach by introducing a practically applicable project design tool. Those features are : the linkages between RBM and RBB, attribution of costs and benefits to specific project results.
