This strategic approach to project evaluation goes beyond technical skills and number crunching to focus of the four major aspects of project evaluation: 1. Conceptual: Discover how to custom design your evaluation to take into account the specific needs of everyone concerned with you particular project. 2. Managerial: See how to take control of your evaluation and guide it in the right direction by effectively managing finances, time, staff, and consultants. 3. Technical: Get up to speed on evaluation terminology, instrument design, information collection methods, and testing techniques. 4. Political: Find out how to put people at ease and win their cooperation, be sensitive to all parties' needs, and use nonthreatening language and communicate evaluation results in the best possible light, without compromising accuracy and objectivity. Effective Evaluation shows you how to combine all four aspects into a practical, effective evaluation plan to impress funders as well as capture the information you need to strengthen your project.
