Contemporary Issues in Project Management, Monitoring and Evaluation is intended to offer both minds-on and hands-on expertise to its readers, more appropriately to its users. The book exposes the user to concept clarification on the key themes that it covers, highlighting areas of divergence and convergence between Programme and Project, Evaluation and Research, between Monitoring and Evaluation. In good number of cases, the user is exposed to a multiple perception and definitions of concepts. Readers, and better still users, are thus led not simply to absorb information and recite principles, but more importantly to exercise their minds as they go through the thirteen chapters of the book, exercising judgement, drawing informed conclusions and subjecting issues to an un-ending process of reflection.
This book is designed to help you understand and accomplish the objectives and requirements of the research project in your course. You will find the examples used in this book useful to your course and also your research work. Lecturers and tutors will find the book very useful in that it will remove the obstacles caused by try and error methods used by novice faculty members. Explanations are well refined, calculation well illustrated and practical examples that are applicable in lecture hall situations. We hope you will find this book a very useful tool that will make your work more presentable.
