Sourcebook on Results-Based Management in the European Structural Funds - EC Community of Practice - (2014)
As it explains, this Sourcebook seeks to demystify “results” and “results based management” by making the assumptions underlying these concepts clear. In this way, the Sourcebook intends to raise awareness that no system, tool, method or procedure can ensure that people make “sound” decisions. However, the document makes it clear that systems can make it harder for people to get together and discuss what they think they are doing, and what they should be doing. When this happens, it notes, it is harder for them to act in the best intentions and to the best of their ability to do what they think is meaningful at that time. For this reason, understanding of RBM is incredibly important, and this document like others that have been uploaded works to create this understanding in the reader. Interestingly, however, it does it by analysing the word that's already been done in the European Structural Funds with RBM.
