Organisational Development Community of Practice – Defining Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning in the Context of Organisational Development Support
The Organisational Development Community of Practice will host “Defining Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning in the Context of Organisational Development Support” online on 12 October.
Over the past year, the Organisational Development (OD) Community of Practice has hosted a range of sessions that delved into the broader philanthropy ecosystem. They have covered analysing the evolving power dynamics between grantmakers and grantees, or integrating a wellbeing lens and consequently, foundations are recognising the transformative potential of OD support. Building upon these discussions, the Community of Practice is now looking to focus on specific areas of support for partners. The upcoming session will bridge the subject of OD with Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL), a pairing that can be viewed in two ways: either considering MEL as a form of OD support or examining the MEL of OD support itself.
The session will delve deeper into discussions on the language of MEL in the context of OD support, particularly as philanthropy increasingly seeks to move beyond linear impact measurement models.
This session is open to funders only.
