Developing an Evaluation Plan
In this live online workshop, we will guide you through the process of developing a comprehensive evaluation plan, including the development of evaluation questions, the creation of data collection instruments, and the establishment of data management procedures.
We will review the monitoring and evaluation toolkit so you can decide which tools are most suitable to what you are trying to find out as well as to the time and resources you have available. Through practical examples and hands-on activities, you will learn how to define clear evaluation objectives, select appropriate evaluation methods, and identify relevant data collection and analysis techniques.
In addition, we will explore strategies for engaging stakeholders and ensuring the utilization of evaluation findings for decision-making and program improvement. Whether you’re involved in research, program management, or organizational development, this workshop will provide you with the tools to design evaluations that generate meaningful insights.
This live workshop gives you the opportunity to develop your impact evaluation strategy in a supportive environment with other professionals and direct engagement with the trainer.
