The goal of this stage is to assess the effects of PI project interventions
on provider performance and to judge the extent to which the performance gaps
have closed. The evaluation may also examine organizational performance or the
capacity of an institution to support and sustain improved provider performance.
The evaluation stage is the culmination of a series of evaluative exercises
conducted at each stage in the life of the project. The end-of-project evaluation
is based on a foundation laid during the definition of desired performance and
fed by assessments conducted during intervention selection and implementation.
The design of the Evaluation Plan is carried out early in the PI process, after
Define Desired Performance.
The outputs of this stage are:
- The results data
- The evaluation report.
