Please join Washington Evaluators for a seminar with Heather Britt.

Causal Link Monitoring (CLM) is an integrated approach to project design and monitoring. At its heart, the approach consists of cycles of design, monitor/evaluate, re-design repeated over the life of the project to continually inform adaptive management. During project design, CLM enhances the logic model by pinpointing where cause-and-effect relationships are less certain and where a design will be most sensitive to influence from its operating context. The CLM monitoring, evaluation and learning plan is designed to track the uncertain, emergent, contested and dynamic aspects of the project as it adapts. The brief (authored by Heather Britt, Richard Hummelbrunner and Jackie Greene) synthesizes a decade of trial applications, expert reviews, and lessons learned.
