Outcome Mapping: Considering Complexity, Relationships, and Context in M&E for Social Change

At the 2015 American Evaluation Association’s Annual Conference in Chicago, I had the opportunity to take a professional development course on, “Outcome Mapping: An Approach for Considering Complexity, Relationships and Context in Monitoring and Evaluating Social Change.” Simon Hearn of Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and Kaia Ambrose of CARE Canada covered the seven components of intentional design for oucome mapping. They explained key outcome mapping concepts and techniques such as how to map out spheres of influence, identify boundary partners, and create progress indicators. For more information on outcome mapping, take a look at Simon and Kaia’s AEA365 blog post and keep up with the OM community on Twitter. Scroll down to see visual notes from the course!OM1
