Principles-Focused Evaluation for Transformation (Michael Quinn Patton & Kate McKegg)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Presented by Michael Quinn Patton and Kate McKegg, the workshop is based on Patton’s latest book, Principles-Focused Evaluation: The GUIDE(2018).

Principles-focused evaluation for transformations is a special application – and an especially relevant one. Transformations are not simply projects and programs. Transformations can involve major, complex, and rapid systems changes. Given the complexities, uncertainties, multidimensional, and multi-level (macro, meso, micro) nature of transformative change, principle-focused global systems change initiatives are appropriately evaluated with principles-focused Blue Marble (whole Earth) evaluation. The implications of this will be presented, discussed, and applied.
