5 Evaluation Lessons From a Recovering Program Officer

486

Published on

As a profession, evaluators must constantly demonstrate the value of their work to remain relevant. Each evaluation represents a significant investment in resources that many argue could be used to provide more programming. A primary concern of maintaining the value proposition of the evaluation field is ensuring that evaluations remain manageable and useful to all participants.

In this Ignite session at the American Evaluation Association's annual conference in Washington, D.C., Will Fenn offered five succinct lessons from a former foundation Program Officer that can be applied across program types to help nonprofits and foundations improve evaluation coordination and use. The session focused on improving the practice of evaluation by recommending a cooperative approach to build evaluation capacity in nonprofits and to improve practice in the field.
