Workshop: Is Developmental Evaluation Right for You?

WHEN:                  Tuesday, June 19th @ 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

If you’re involved in running any kind of community program, chances are you have had conversations about whether your work is really making a difference.

One good way to answer this question is through program evaluation.  However, traditional program evaluation doesn’t always feel like a good fit, especially for small grassroots projects, projects that evolve very quickly, or projects fuelled more by creativity and opportunity than by linear, analytic planning.    Recently, a new approach to program evaluation that promises to be a better fit for these kinds of projects has emerged.  It is called Developmental Evaluation.

In this informal, conversational workshop we will introduce the basic concepts of developmental evaluation and have some discussion about whether “DE” is the right approach for you.   We’ll also talk about other options available to those who don’t feel like “traditional” approaches to evaluation are a good fit.

This workshop will be facilitated by the team from Taylor Newberry Consulting.   We are a small company based at 10 Carden that specializes in program evaluation.
