Governments, parliaments, citizens, the private sector, NGOs, civil society, international organizations and donors are among the stakeholders interested in better performance. As demands for greater accountability and real results have increased, there is an attendant need for enhanced results-based monitoring and evaluation of policies, programs, and projects. This Handbook provides a comprehensive ten-step model that will help guide development practitioners through the process of designing and building a results-based monitoring and evaluation system. These steps begin with a OC Readiness AssessmentOCO and take the practitioner through the design, management, and importantly, the sustainability of such systems. The Handbook describes each step in detail, the tasks needed to complete each one, and the tools available to help along the way."

Author: Michel Houellebecq
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Download and read online Submission in PDF and EPUB A controversial, intelligent, and mordantly funny new novel from France's most famous literary figure Paris, 2022. François is bored. He's a middle-aged lecturer at the Sorbonne and an expert on J. K. Huysmans, the famous nineteenth-century "decadent" author. But François's own decadence is considerably smaller in scale. He sleeps with his students, eats microwave dinners, reads the classics, queues up YouPorn. Meanwhile, it's election season. And although Francois feels "about as politicized as a hand towel," things are getting pretty interesting. In an alliance with the socialists, France's new Islamic party sweeps to power. Islamic law comes into force. Women are veiled, polygamy is encouraged, and Francois is offered an irresistible academic advancement--on condition that he convert to Islam. Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker has said of this novel that "Houellebecq is not merely a satirist but--more unusually--a sincere satirist, genuinely saddened by the absurdities of history and the madnesses of mankind." Michel Houellebecq's Submission may be satirical and melancholic, but it is also hilarious; a comic masterpiece by one of France's great novelists.

Download and read online Visualizing Research in PDF and EPUB Visualizing Research guides postgraduate students in art and design through the development and implementation of a research project, using the metaphor of a 'journey of exploration'. For use with a formal programme of study, from masters to doctoral level, the book derives from the creative relationship between research, practice and teaching in art and design. It extends generic research processes into practice-based approaches more relevant to artists and designers, introducing wherever possible visual, interactive and collaborative methods. The Introduction and Chapter 1 'Planning the Journey' define the concept and value of 'practice-based' formal research, tracking the debate around its development and explaining key concepts and terminology. ‘Mapping the Terrain’ then describes methods of contextualizing research in art and design (the contextual review, using reference material); ‘Locating Your Position’ and ‘Crossing the Terrain’ guide the reader through the stages of identifying an appropriate research question and methodological approach, writing the proposal and managing research information. Methods of evaluation and analysis are explored, and of strategies for reporting and communicating research findings are suggested. Appendices and a glossary are also included. Visualizing Research draws on the experience of researchers in different contexts and includes case studies of real projects. Although written primarily for postgraduate students, research supervisors, managers and academic staff in art and design and related areas, such as architecture and media studies, will find this a valuable research reference. An accompanying website www.visualizingresearch.info includes multimedia and other resources that complement the book.

Download and read online Experiences of Test Automation in PDF and EPUB A unique book that consists entirely of test automation case studies from a variety of domains - from the top names in the field * *Proven advice to empower development organizations to save time by mirroring others' experiences and save money by avoiding others' mistakes. *Insightful case studies from a wide variety of domains, including aerospace, pharmaceuticals, insurance, technology, and telecommunications. *Focuses on the basic issues, rather then technology trends, to give the book a long shelf life. The practice of test automation is becoming more and more popular, but many organizations are not yet experiencing success with it. This book unveils the secrets of how automation has been made to work in reality. The knowledge gained by reading this book can save months or years of effort in automating software testing by helping organizations avoid expensive mistakes and take advantage of proven ideas. By its nature, this book shows the current state of software test automation practice. The authors aim to keep the contributions focused on those things that are more universal (e.g. people issues, return on investment, etc.) and to minimize detailed technical content where this does not impede the process of learning valuable lessons, in order to give the book as long a shelf life as possible. Software practitioners always enjoy reading about what happened to others. For example, at conferences, case study presentations are usually very well attended. The authors/editors have gathered together a collection of experiences from a cross-section of industries and countries, both success stories and failures, in both agile and traditional development. In addition to the case studies, the authors/editors comment on issues raised in these stories, and also include a chapter summarizing good practices and common pitfalls.
