Rapid outcome mapping approach: More useful than used to plan the whole policy research initiative

The RAPID Outcome Mapping Approach is a methodology that I helped develop while working for the RAPID Programme at the Overseas Development Institute. I think we made a mistake (well, more than one, but let me focus on this one today). RAPID has always been in high demand when it comes to helping policy research organisations and programmes to plan, monitor and evaluate policy research influencing strategies. It is (and I still am) called to this help after the overall policy research programme has been designed: the objectives (and logframes) have been decided and the contracts has been signed with the funder.
