Results-Based Management

Results-based management (RBM) is a tool that is used to improve effectiveness and accountability of projects and organizations by focusing on the achievement of realistic results. The principles of RBM are used throughout the life cycle of a project or program (from planning to monitoring and evaluation). Universalia has extensive experience in using RBM principles and helping clients integrate these into their own organizations. We help our clients develop results-based logical framework analyses (LFAs) to use as the basis for tracking the achievement of results.

Since 1980 Universalia has published several practical RBM guides and helped numerous clients to develop their own RBM frameworks at project, program and organizational levels. Universalia has also developed and delivered approximately 100 training and capacity building programs in results-based performance management and measurement at the organizational, program, and project levels. To ensure that our clients and their stakeholders have a clear understanding of both theory and application, we use learner-centered and practical methodologies that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients’ organizations or programs. Our results-based approach is consistent with the current best practices in managing for development results (MfDR).
