Since 2015, I've brought non evaluator colleagues to AES Conferences. In a striking correlation, I've also seen the number of people at my organisation using evaluative thinking in their day to day work grow in the same period. While correlation is not causation, I'd like to use this presentation to present qualitative evidence gathered from said colleagues around how they contribute to evaluative thinking and practice within my own organisation. In not-unrelated arguments, I'll also show you that these non-evaluators think evaluators are pretty fun, and in some cases even start to consider themselves evaluators and act as such.
