The overall focus of this thesis is the analysis of the implementation of RBM in development organisations of multilateral nature with a focu on M&E systems so as to further our understanding of the influence these systems have in organisational effectiveness. Data has been collected on a primary and secondary basis, respectively through qualitative interviews with key experts and practitioners and a number of reports produced by international organisations and relevant stakeholders. The point of departure has been a literature review on the introduction of RBM in the public and subsequently the development sector. The review has permitted to discover the case of UNDP as critical in adjusting its M&E frameworks towards a results-orientation. UNDP has been considered a critical case enabling for generalisation, particularly because of the agency’s strong commitment to adopt the general principles of RBM throughout all its procedures and operations including M&E. In this respect, UNDP is today positioned as one of the most advanced in its approach to RBM of all international development agencies.
