I am an independent consultant with a passion for planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning, networks and strategic thinking. I have supported a range of NGOs, networks and governmental institutions across the world in developing and improving their PM&E system. I facilitated trainings, meetings and conferences and provided support in organisational learning and strategy development. Prior to becoming an independent consultant, I was working at ‘The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC)’. As the Coordinator for Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning I have set up a network-wide PME system based on Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting. I hold a Master degree in ‘Intercultural Work and Conflict Management’, a Master in International studies and a bachelor in Social Work and Psychology.

I believe that monitoring and evaluation works best when it is tailor-made to the needs of an organisation. To achieve that, methods may be adapted or combined. I enjoy developing monitoring and evaluation procedures that stimulate learning and innovation. Although I am working with different M&E methods, I am particularly specialised in Outcome Mapping and Outcome Harvesting. I have a keen interest in applying M&E in complex situations and in exploring how systems theory can help evaluation. In addition, I am used to working in conflict environments.
Feel free to contact me to receive more information on how I can support you.
Outcome Harvesting Training Team
I am teaming up with Richard Smith and John Mauremootoo to provide training in Outcome Harvesting. The team has a rich and diverse experience working with Outcome Harvesting in evaluation and monitoring as well as training and coaching others in its use. Each has benefited greatly from undertaking or participating in outcome harvests with Ricardo Wilson-Grau.
The next training will take place in Ghent, Belgium on May 2 - 4 2017.

Michael Quinn Patton’s new book on Developmental Evaluation is out!
Chapter 10 is written by myself and two colleagues.
Responding to evaluator and instructor demand, this book presents a diverse set of high-quality developmental evaluation (DE) case studies. Twelve insightful exemplars illustrate how DE is used to evaluate innovative initiatives in complex, dynamic environments, including a range of fields and international settings. Written by leading practitioners, chapters offer a rare window into what it takes to do DE, what roles must be fulfilled, and what results can be expected. Each case opens with an incisive introduction by the editors. The book also addresses frequently asked questions about DE, synthesizes key themes and lessons learned from the exemplars, and identifies eight essential principles of DE.
