Dear Joseph.

Thanks for your comments. There are many ways that M&E processes can be used to improve the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of a project strategy. Good M&E processes should ideally tell you what is working in your project, and what is not. Thoughtful evaluators, and program managers should work together to analyze the data that comes out of program monitoring and evaluation to identify what needs to be changed to improve the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of a project strategy. This blog post may be a good starting point:
