In the development sphere, monitoring may be carried out for three main purposes: assessing the performance of a programme or project; analyzing organizational performance; and examining features and processes in the environment of an organization or scheme. The three purposes may be more or less related. In all instances, for assessment to be referred to as a monitoring, it should be of a relatively current or frequent nature. We can define it as a frequent and largely routine generation of and reporting on information about the performance of a programme or project, comparison of this with the programme or project plans and, suggesting corrective measures, if any. It mainly covers aspects of finance, the quantity and quality of inputs, as well as executors and the time use in implementation. It may also (and commonly should) encompass some regular assessment of relatively direct changes that are brought about by the scheme.
