Investing in the social sector requires
a deep understanding of why a specific investment will contribute to change the
world for the better. In the case of FSP Team, it means understanding how a
specific grant can contribute to push financial inclusion; increase the use of
financial tools among the poor and to help them live better lives. This is
key to make sure the most relevant development projects are selected and
prioritized – but this is also difficult.
Results framework aims at
achieving such an understanding by highlighting the chain of key
expected results from a specific intervention and how it contributes to a
targeted end-goal. It requires the development of a well-articulated logic
model based on clear hypothesis. And once agreed upon between Program
Officers and Grantees, it can be used as living management tool. This is
why many investment decisions relies on results framework in in the Development
world in general, and at the BMGF (and the FSP team) in particular.
Such a tool is powerful but
the concepts used (activities, outputs, outcomes and strategic
goal) are not intuitive. This leads to discrepancies in the way they are prepared
which, in turn, weaken the investment process. Explaining the role and
meaning of those concepts is key for grantees to be able to articulate
them in a logical way.
This is exactly what this webinar
is aiming at, with three specific objectives in mind:
Developing a shared understanding of what a results framework is and why it is relevant
Defining how results frameworks are built, and as a result improve their median quality among grantees of the FSP team
Providing tools allowing Program Officers to communicate better with grantees when working together on a results framework
This webinar has been built
taking into account the request of the BMGF Program Officers and seeks to be:
Practical, with numerous examples and exercises. The concepts are detailed but it is only when you have successfully applied them that you know they are understood
Easy to use, thanks to an interactive chaptering: you can go through the video at your selected pace, jump directly to the most relevant section for you or re-listen the part you deem the most important
Relevant for multiple types of grants since many different types of intervention can contribute to the FSP’s team objectives while relying on different logic
We hope you will find it useful!
