Monitoring organizational project Evaluating organization programme Reviewing plan of organization Projecting actual business performance
Undertaking regular follow-up and periodic assessment of organizational efforts, plans, programmes, projects and performance in order to further develop forms of action, determine appropriate expertise and overcome obstacles. The assessment process is used to highlight successes and motivate creativity and innovation. Field assessment may be undertaken on a sample of projects, where these are large in number. The monitoring can be internal or by the party undertaking the monitored programme, and external or by an independent body. External monitoring may tend to be less biased.
In 1993, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies expended 247,613 Swiss francs to monitor and evaluate the implementation of its Strategic Work Plan, using the Federation's Monitoring Group.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
