Using SMART indicators to evidence impact!

Good program planning, combined with effective monitoring and evaluation, enhances the impact of development programs. This idea is represented by the popular and strategic approach of Results-Based Management (RBM), increasingly being used by several government and charitable organisations across the globe. A strong RBM system focuses on the ‘life cycle’ of programs, where ‘results’ are central to planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, reporting and decision-making....

The 4th Wheel Experience – From our intern

My summer internship at the 4th Wheel...

Using Data Mining for Donor Profiling (Part 2)

In the previous post, we discussed how data mining, a process through which meaningful data and patterns are acquired from large data sets, can benefit the charitable sector.

Using Data Mining for Donor Profiling (Part 1)

In the age where we are all a string of numbers that can be reduced to categories and patterns through which organizations and politicians target us with their products and agenda, it’s difficult (if not impossible) to stay completely off-the-grid and keep your information private. Only a nomad living in the woods can afford the luxury these days!   Data mining, the process of extracting...
