A two-day course for managers and program evaluation practitioners who want to understand and carry out successful evaluations of their programs.
An essential element of good strategy management is the evaluation of programs including strategic initiatives. When carried out well, there are a range of benefits including improvements in initial program design, ongoing identification of areas for program improvement, an assessment of program outcomes and impacts, improved accountability, and an evidence base that can be used to secure program funding.
While there has always been a need for rigorous evaluation of programs and strategic initiatives by organisations across all sectors, this need has become much more apparent over the past few years. This has been most evident in the not-for-profit and public sectors where funding is increasingly tied to the demonstration of outcomes. This Masterclass aims to address this growing need by equipping participants to effectively evaluate their own programs, a critical element in effective strategy management.
