How to Get Actionable Answers: Reporting from the American Evaluation Association Conference

This week I have the opportunity to attend the 26th Annual American Evaluation Association Conference in Minneapolis. As part of my time here, I attended a workshop that focused on getting actionable answers and recommendations from evaluation reports. Have you ever read an evaluation report and still wondered how worthwhile the outcomes really were or whether the program was a waste of money? What if evaluations actually asked evaluative questions and gave clear, direct, evaluative answers? This workshop, lead by Jane Davidson, provided the opportunity for project managers and evaluators with the tools and information they need to deliver actionable answers. Check out Jane’s incredibly practical resource on this topic here.
