How do we encourage participation in the self-assessment? It is important to set clear goals for the people who will participate in the focus group. The aim is to highlight all the ideas of all the different actors involved in the project. Each participant may identify different benefits in the self-assessment process. All of the perspectives are important, and the goal is to encourage participation. For example Among managers Reinforce the image of the project in the eyes of partners and donors Reassure our donors about the quality of our service Etc.
