Three templates for communications planning

Alice Macfarlan's picture 3rd May 2018 by Alice Macfarlan

In this blog, I wanted to share three examples of communication plan templates that address this and allow for more detail and thinking through of the communication and dissemination process. I think that each of the templates has merit in their own ways, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on whether you think they’re useful, and what processes or discussions you have had about communicating evaluation findings on projects you’ve worked on. What level of effort or thought about communication do you typically put in? Are there any barriers to communicating evaluation results that you’ve come across? What’s worked and what hasn’t?

New resource contributions from our members

We've had a number of great resource contributions come in over the past couple of weeks and so we thought we'd take the time to highlight them here. BetterEvaluation relies on the contributions of members to share and co-create knowledge about monitoring and evaluation, and we feel extraordinarily privileged to be a part of a community of people who are working together to help improve evaluation practice around the world.
