What is IOCOM?

IOCOM is a web-based organization of professionals, academia and an alliance of international and national organizations (associations, societies and networks engaged in the discipline of outcome management and development).

The objective of IOCOM is to invite professionals and academics to create a forum for the exchange of useful and high quality theories, methodologies and effective practice in outcome management and development. IOCOM invites everyone interested in outcome management and development to make use of our resources, to participate in our initiatives and to contribute to our goals as individuals or through outcome and development management organizations. We offer global linkages to outcome and development management professionals and organizations, news of events and important initiatives, and opportunities to exchange ideas, practices, and insights with peers and associations, societies and networks throughout the world at large.


The vision is collaboration between professionals in outcome management and development, monitoring and evaluation associations, societies and networks to strengthen the theory and practice of the discipline in the world.
Stronger outcome and development management theory and practice in the world through regional collaboration and partnership which foster the cross-fertilization of ideas, high professional standards and an open and global perspective among outcome and development management professionals in the public and private sectors and academia.


To elevate the status of the discipline of outcome and development management in the world at large and to support professionals, societies, associations or networks to facilitate their contribution to good governance driven by the quest for evidence informed decision making and strengthen the role of civil society.


IOCOM will facilitate institutionalization of outcome management principles, practices and capacity for managing development, encourage the development of new societies, associations and networks that propagate outcome management and development strategies, undertake professional development (knowledge and skills building) activities that will increase public awareness of the discipline and will seek to secure resources for collaborative activity in the world at large.

IOCOM will collaborate to:

  • build outcome and development management leadership and capacity (an evidence base on outcome and development management research, knowledge and practice) in the world at large,
  • foster the cross-fertilization of outcome management theory and practice in the world at large,
  • address global challenges in outcome and development management, and
  • assist outcome and development management professionals and organizations to take a more global approach to contributing to the identification and solution of regional problems.
