MANAGING PERFORMANCE OF HEALTH PROGRAM USING LOGICAL FRAMEWORK APPROACH: BEST PRACTICE
Performance management constitutes of several major processes, namely measurement of the performance, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of improvements. Developing a framework is recommended and as for that, the use of the Logical Framework Approach (LFA) is suggested in developing a framework for managing the performance of any programs. The LFA is a powerful analytical tool for planning and managing objective-oriented projects. This tool could be utilised during the designing process and initial planning. It could also functions as a management tool during the program implementation, monitoring and evaluation. As a standardised tool for many projects at one go due to its comprehensiveness component, the LFA framework could be planned by the program manager and is easily monitored by the program coordinator or supervisor. Therefore, the main objective of this article is to discuss the application of the LFA in managing program performance.
