Perspective on Process Monitoring Program
The monitoring activities undertaken as part of the evaluation should meet the information needs of all these groups.
1. Process Monitoring from the evaluator’s perspective: Getting to know what took place is a prerequisite for explaining or hypothesizing why a program did or did not work. Without the monitoring process, the evaluator is engaged in “black box” research with no basis for comparison.
2. Process Monitoring from an Accountability perspective: Program managers have a responsibility to inform their sponsors and funders of the activities undertaken, the degree of implementation of programs, the problems encountered and what the future holds.
3. Process monitoring from a management perspective: Evaluators’ interest in the monitoring of data centers generally on determining how a program’s potential impact is related to its implementation
