Workshop - Outcome Harvesting: good practices to assure the quality

This event is jointly organised by Partos, GPPAC and Wolfgang Richert (OH consultant), and is financed by Partos and the Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law through a GPPAC project on Outcome Harvesting. We share a concern for the quality of OH use in the Netherlands, especially in the current situation in which a large number of organisations in the Strategic Partnerships (SPs) are using Outcome Harvesting to identify and formulate their outcomes.

Date: 24 April 2018
Location: Bleyenberg, Grote Markt 10, 2511 BG The Hague

Key questions that will be addressed during the workshop (see also attached guidance note):

  • What can SPs do to increase the credibility of outcomes – in theory and in practice?
  • What is the credible-enough evidence required by MFA and IOB? In other words, when is an outcome credible enough?
  • In addition, we will share a concept guidance note on this issue, and gather your feedback before finalisation.
