Principles help organizations adhere to values and beliefs, and helps them be effective; especially when dealing with complex issues.

This workshop will enable participants to understand how and when using a principles-focused evaluation design will have the most impact.

After the workshop participants will:

  • be able to identify when a principles-focused evaluation methodology could be used.
  • have a framework to help them to assess and/or develop quality effectiveness principles.
  • develop a principles-focused evaluation plan specific to their interests.

The workshop will include the review of Michael Quinn-Patton’s GUIDE framework for assessing quality effectiveness principles as well as small group and practical application of what is learned by designing a plan to answer principles-focused evaluation questions.

The workshop will be most useful to those familiar with evaluation basics, whose work is guided by principles, or who address complex issues.
