How Can We Improve Monitoring and Evaluation with Information and Communication Technologies?
The demand for quantifiable results is more important than ever. From foundations, to USAID, to individual donors, there is an expectation for real-time data as it happens. We all claim to regularly monitor and rigorously evaluate our programs, but do we really?
We should be using the many tools of ICT to find and analyze data from every aspect of our work. It should be easier with the plethora of low-cost survey, analysis, and visualizations tools. Yet, there is still a gap between what the donor hopes for and what really happens.
Our conversation will be guided by these noted experts:
- Amy Sweeney, GeoPoll
- Doug Infiesto, TerraFrame
- Jonathan Newberry, CauseLabs
- Norman Shamas, TechChange
They will help us look at both the new ways in which we can monitor and evaluate using technology today, and how we can learn from our efforts to design better future program management systems for tomorrow.
We’ll have hot coffee and breakfast treats, but space is limited to 35 participants. Interested parties can request an invite by registering at the link below, but registering does not guarantee you a spot. Invitations will be sent to the 35 guests prior to the Salon.

About the Tech Salon —
The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both: technology’s impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations – PowerPoint is banned and attendance is capped at 30 people. We expect frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions that will move the sector from talk to action.
Tech Salons are held around the world and the Denver Tech Salon will join chapters based out of Washington, DC, New York City, NY, San Francisco, CA, Nairobi, KE, London, UK, and Toronto/Ottawa, CA.
