Mixing methods for rich and meaningful insight

The different perceptions of participants regarding the effectiveness of a project can, at times, be hard to identify.

This article provides a detailed examination of how this was done during a project among small vegetable producers in the Andes in 2010.

This example comes from the virtual writeshop process led by Irene Guijt for BetterEvaluation.
