    • Save resources and time. M&E efforts alert program and project managers to what works and what does not. This information helps decision-makers know what programs to invest in and which to discontinue.
    • Provide evidence of effectiveness (or lack thereof) to stakeholders. M&E provides qualitative and quantitative data to leadership and other stakeholders who have an invested interest in program success. M&E often results in hard reports that can be analyzed and results shared.
    • Help companies stay organized. M&E helps with tracking progress of implementation and record keeping.
