It’s not only about the “how”: Asking the right questions to get better evaluation

Efforts to build evaluation capacity in the nonprofit sector often begin with the assumption that the problem is lack of skill, resources, or interest by nonprofits. However, based on our research we think the problem may have more to do with the fact that the nonprofit evaluation “system” is not well designed- i.e. the ways evaluation is funded, rewarded, disseminated and used at a societal level.

Nonprofit evaluation is most likely to be frustrating and under-used when it’s done for poorly articulated reasons, when relationships aren’t based on trust and there isn’t enough attention to alignment between methodologies, approaches, and intended uses.

Join this interactive webinar to explore our brand new guide to help you get it right. We’ll present some common evaluation scenarios and walk through how you can put this guide into action to get the most out of an evaluation. We’ll push your critical thinking about the purposes that evaluation work is serving and the reasons why it sometimes fails to deliver on its promise.

This is for nonprofits, funders, and evaluators to get tips on what questions to ask, when and where to ask them, and what challenges might come up along the way.
