There are many ways to do program evaluation, making it difficult to know how to start. In my new book, I outline a clear approach for how to get going, and provide real world stories and examples of evaluation plans, surveys, and reports. The book also includes a companion website filled with downloadable real world examples and templates.

The Evaluation into Action Method

We Start with Design

Before we even begin implementation, we make sure we can answer key questions about the evaluation needs of the organization. “What?”, “Why?”, and “How.”

Then We Implement a Realistic Plan

We’ll assess your organization’s unique needs and capacities, setting you up for success in collecting, managing, analyzing, and reporting key data and insights.

To Use Actionable Findings

We demystify the program evaluation process to generate findings you can use to share and improve your programs. See Expanded Method
