A primer on results measurement and surveys: DCED Standard for Results Measurement

The DCED Standard is a framework that helps practitioners articulate their hypotheses clearly. It also helps them to systematically set and monitor indicators that show whether or not events are occurring as predicted. This empowers practitioners to adapt their programs based on the data they collect. Many would say this is just good management. Over 100 projects in over 50 countries are currently using the DCED Standard. This includes projects ranging from value chain development, to challenge funds, to business environment reform. 

Using the standard also helps improve the degree of rigor in results measurement. 

Attached, you can find the one page outline about the Standard and how it can help you and your organization.
