Measuring Impact: Evaluation Approaches

This full-day session will provide insight into one of the major approaches to evaluation used today, as well as a deepened understanding and comfort of “how to”. This session is intended for senior staff and board members concerned about or charged with measuring impact in their nonprofit organization or program.

Participants will come away with an increased understanding of:

  • The key role of an evaluation plan in selecting research methods and building organizational commitment to evaluation;
  • Principal methods of data gathering for evaluation;
  • The challenges of introducing and/or building effective ongoing evaluation in an organization;
  • Building an evaluation culture as organizational change;
  • Specific strategies for shifting the organizational culture to support evaluation.
