An M&E Work plan is integral for any M&E personnel. Not only does the work plan enable one to organize himself or herself well, it also ensures that a timeline of activities is established well before hand. The M&E work plan, if designed in an appropriate way, guides the M&E activities, with objectively targeted timelines. Below is a sample table of an M&E work plan.

NB: It should be noted, however, that an M&E Work plan is quite different from the M&E Plan. While an M&E work plan lists out the activities that need to be accomplished within a set duration, a M&E Plan is a detailed plan, several pages long, which outlines key questions and indicators that Monitoring and Evaluation activities will seek to verify, the data sources, who will be responsible for collecting data in what timelines, how the data will be reported and in what timelines.
