Alicia McCoy's picture 4th July 2019 by Alicia McCoy

This blog is the fourth in our series about un-boxing evaluation – the theme of aes19 in Sydney, Australia. The series is designed to generate a global discussion of the theme ‘un-boxing evaluation’ and what that means for our profession and practice. In this post, Alicia McCoy (Head of Research and Evaluation at Beyond Blue) discusses her own experiences in 'un-boxing' evaluation by challenging her assumptions about what evaluation 'is', and how the NGO sector can benefit from this un-boxing.
