The Good Project

This chapter analyses the management tools that have shaped service-delivery in development aid and humanitarian relief. The logframe made the project possible as the central unit of planning of provision and as the central unit of exchange between funders and NGOs. A version of results-based management, the logframe has introduced an emphasis on clear goals and evidence for results but, in doing so, has separated evidence of results according to very specific project aims from broader questions of coverage of people's needs and broader consideration of possible effects. The logframe created the “beneficiary” as the specific part of a population in need that is selected to be served. Tools like the logframe enable an organization to produce results without a commitment to any specific part of a population. It has linked results to costs and it has thus made it possible, in principle, to compare projects for different groups of beneficiaries according to price.
