Designing and managing an evaluation program
In some cases, the Center's clients will want evaluation and analytic work to be done at “arm's length” to unequivocally preserve both the fact and appearance of our independence. Often, however, especially in the early stages of a program’s life, a more collaborative involvement is appropriate. Sometimes, the client will even want to perform the evaluation using us as coaches. Thus, there are many circumstances where program managers need to have more than a passing familiarity with evaluation.
