This guest blog is by Anoushka Kenley from NPC, who is one of the authors of NPC's recent report on Global Innovations in Measurement and Evaluation. Anoushka shares with us a bit of the process behind the report, and discusses three of the eight trends that the report focuses on and why they're important.
This web page from Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat provides an outline of some of the key concepts of theory based approaches to evaluation. The general application of a variety of different approaches is discussed along with some advice on the potential applications for government agencies.

Happy Holidays! In celebration of a great year, we've collected a list of favourite resources of 2016 that are freely available online so that we could share them with you as a bit of an end of year gift. The resources aren't necessarily new - but they are things that have been discovered for the first time or rediscovered in 2016. We have a wide range of cool tools, guides, examples and other resources that help us do evaluation better and think about it differently.
