2.0 Planning M&E activities

This first phase in a project or business operation life cycle entails the planning and visioning process for measuring performance. During this phase, an M&E framework (logical framework, results framework) is created, indicators are developed and defined, and detailed M&E plans and work plans are drafted. While these all may be revised as the project continues and evolves, this is the starting place for the foundational work in setting the parameters for the project’s life cycle.
