  1. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 16: Identifying and documenting emergent outcomes of a global network

    12th April, 2013

    Global voluntary networks are complex beasts with dynamic and unpredictable actions and interactions. How can we evaluate the results of a network like this? Whose results are we even talking about? This was the challenge facing BioNET when they came to the end of their five year programme and is the subject of the second paper in the BetterEvaluation writeshop series, which we want to introduce in this weeks' blog.

  5. Developing a research agenda for impact evaluation

    13th February, 2015

    Impact evaluation, like many areas of evaluation, is under-researched. Doing systematic research about evaluation takes considerable resources, and is often constrained by the availability of information about evaluation practice.  Much of the work undertaken in evaluation is not readily visible (see  the recent comments by Drew Cameron on an earlier blog post which provide details about the considerable effort involved in a study of impact evaluations in development).  

  6. Learning about learning in an adaptive programme

    21st March, 2017

    Last week, we started our focus on Adaptive Management with a blog post by Patricia Rogers that explored how monitoring and evaluation can support adaptive management. This week, we're continuing this series with a guest blog from Fred Carden and Arnaldo Pellini, in which they discuss what they learned about adaptive management in a major project on developing capacity for evidence-based policy.

  8. 52 weeks of BetterEvaluation: Week 15: Evaluation conferences 2013

    12th April, 2013

    One of the most effective ways of learning about the evaluation field is to attend a conference, present your work and interact with other professionals.

    This is why, this week, we are providing you with a round up of evaluation conferences taking place this year. We already talked about the Evaluation Conclave which took place in Kathmandu in February but there are many more taking place across the world.

  10. Three templates for effective communications planning

    3rd May, 2018

    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?
