GLOSSARY: Process Monitoring

Process Monitoring refers to the collection of information on the use of inputs, the progress of activities, and the way these are carried out. Process monitoring looks at why and how things have happened; it looks at relevance, effectiveness and the efficiency of processes. It involves stakeholders and beneficiaries in planning, in deciding what is to be monitored, and in developing and recording monitoring processes. Process monitoring requires documentation of how the process was carried out.
