  • A. Prepare your data for analysis

  • B. Analyze results
    • analyze operational & financial data (efficiency of outputs)
    • analyze project results & assumptions (effectiveness of strategies, outcomes, impacts)
    • document discussions and decisions for future reference and sharing
  • C. Adapt the plan

    • document discussions and decisions for future reference and sharing

Results of analysis and adaptation then need to be communicated – both internally and externally – to key stakeholders (Step 5).
