Outcomes and Program
Through Process Evaluation
AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Network for Strong
About the Workshop:
Take your outcome evaluation to the next level!
We all know how important it is to measure our outcomes in today's nonprofit
environment. And nothing is more disappointing than carefully planning our
outcome measurement strategies, then learning at the end of our evaluation that
we fell well short of where we wanted to be. This workshop is intended for
people who have a good foundation in outcome evaluation but who are interested
in exploring/going deeper into aspects of process evaluation in order to better
understand results for program improvement. A good process evaluation
(carefully tracking and reflecting upon activities/outputs in real time) will
help you analyze your outcomes more effectively, and help address program
challenges before they lead to disappointing outcomes.
Join us for a workshop that will provide you with an advanced
understanding of outcome evaluation!
