Learning and reflection through Evaluation
Getting a good evaluation outcome is more than just deploying the right technique ... having a team that listens, facilitates reflection and progresses coordinated learning-cycles will make a big difference.
As evaluators, we pride ourselves on evaluation design and deploying the right mix of methodological approaches. Within an evaluation, knowledge and skills in research
methods and systematic inquiry are, of course, critical for collecting valid and
reliable data on which evaluative conclusions and recommendations can be made.
This is a core ingredient of any evaluation. As important are the interpersonal skills required.
listening for and respecting others’ points of view
having the capacity to build relationships with a range of people
maintaining an objective perspective
collaborating and partnering with stakeholders to engage them in evaluation processes
