Abstract: This is the management summary of the 2005 evaluation report of the Capacity Development programme in Uganda. Since the start of IICD’s capacity development programme, courses and seminars have been evaluated by participants. In June 2005 the results from the data analysis have been discussed in a focus group meeting for project owners and training partners. The participants’ level of satisfaction with the content of the training, the trainers and the facilities was found to be very high. More than half of the participants indicated that they experienced a positive economic impact. It indicates that the need for external help to deal with ICT issues in the projects is diminished and more problems can be solved by the staff members themselves. The positive organizational impact is quite low (37%), which points at the difficulty of transferring the knowledge and skills to the workplace. Some of the practical tips shared in the group included: (1) invest in developing the skills of more than one member of the organization in order to spread the knowledge; (2) ensure the training meets a specific project-related need, which makes it easier to translate the acquired skills into practice; (3) encourage teamwork and the sharing of knowledge more actively; and (4) take measures to reduce resistance against ICT tools.
