Outcome Harvesting has proven to be especially useful in complex situations when it is not possible to define concretely most of what an intervention aims to achieve, or even, what specific actions will be taken over a multi-year period.

Outcome Harvesting is one of five complexity-aware monitoring approaches promoted by USAID’s Complexity-Aware M&E Team. Outcome Harvesting works backwards to identify, describe and verify contribution to results, both expected and unexpected.

Outcome Harvesting: a tool for identifying and understanding results in complex circumstances
Other Added February 7th, 2017 08:45
Outcome Harvesting is a method that enables evaluators, grant makers, and managers to identify, formulate, verify, and make sense of outcomes. The method was inspired by the definition of outcome as a change in the behavior, relationships, actions, activities, policies, or practices of an individual, group, community, organization, or institution

Countries are increasingly taking innovative approaches to monitor and evaluate the performance of public policies, programs
and service delivery. There are a number of reasons why this is happening. On the one hand, M&E has to respond to the higher
standards expected of it, and to the fast-changing environment. On the other hand, as technology moves forward, opportunities for innovation in M&E are opening up.

This is Part 2 of a three part series of video lectures conducted by USAID on complexity. This lecture focus on the question 'How do these conceptions of complexity help us think and act?' The lecture begins by looking at predictability and unpredictability in terrorism and civil wars then moves on to a range of tools that can be used for grappling with complexity.

Synchronizing monitoring with the pace of change is one of three key principles underlying complexity-aware monitoring.This principle emphasizes the importance of attending to the time dimension of strategies and projects, and in particular, their emergent or dynamic aspects.

Attending to interrelationships, multiple perspectives, and boundaries is one of three key principles underlying complexity-aware monitoring. This principle emphasizes the importance of using systems concepts when monitoring, regardless of whether the monitoring method is drawn from the systems field, or is a more traditional monitoring method.
