This is the fourth guidance note from InterAction's series on impact evaluation. The guide, written by David Bonbright, outlines three key themes linked to the effective use of evaluation results. The first theme focuses on ensuring the use of results is planned for from the beginning of the process.

Finally, the third theme argues that unless organisational culture is reformed results of impact evaluations will never be used well.
