Jade Maloney (ARTD), Katherine Rich (ARTD) To address ‘wicked’ social problems, there’s a need for programs to recognise their potential to impact on systems and for ongoing learning to be built in. So what can we evaluators do to amplify the impact of an evaluation project on systems? We’ll share three takes from our work with Fair Trading. 1) Evaluators can assist program managers to build systems thinking into design – incorporating ways of addressing systems issues into their logic rather than treating them as external factors or barriers. 2) Evaluators can build capacity for evaluative thinking among program staff in every evaluation project. 3) And, when the context is right, they can also create a transferable monitoring and evaluation framework that organisations can continue to use when the project ends.
