Managing an international organization or program today has major challenges. Stakeholders and donors alike insist on achievement of results. Because international organizations work indirectly with governments and other beneficiaries, demonstrating that results have been achieved has been, and continues to be difficult. Yet, unless an organization can show how programs and projects make change happen, support can be affected and improvements in delivery made more difficult.
Associates for International Management Services (AIMS) was established in 1997 to assist organizations to implement results-based management (RBM) successfully. We are a consortium of former international civil servants, NGO leaders and government officials who also have strong academic backgrounds. We are able provide technical assistance in all aspects of RBM. We address issues of strategic planning, programme implementation and monitoring and evaluation of results achieved. We have extensive practical experience and work in the main United Nations official languages.
We can be an asset for any organization wishing to improve its effectiveness.
AIMS provides assistance to public and non-profit organizations in systematic, low-cost performance monitoring and evaluation. We specialize in applying results-based management (RBM) and offer a range of additional services. Our distinguished list of current and past clients includes the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, the International Labour Organization, the United Nations Development Group, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, the World Meteorological Organization, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification and The United Nations Development Program Evaluation Office. Our team of consultants includes former senior international civil servants who also have academic experience, former leaders of non-governmental organizations, and other technical assistance specialists in international policy and management.
AIMS has delivered RBM training in a variety of formats to a wide range of organizations across the globe and in three languages. Sessions have ranged from brief overview presentations to one- to three-day interactive workshops with follow-up coaching and advice. AIMS tailors its RBM presentations and training workshops for each organization in its specific context. The training material is presented in an accessible way incorporating a variety of examples for key terminology, samples of completed logical frameworks, video clips and handouts. It emphasizes group exercises based on content provided by the participants, and substantial feedback on the work produced during the workshops.
