Plans for 2024

The second half of 2023 was so incredibly full of exciting assignments I did not find any moment to update my website. Watch this space in the coming months for the publication of our Evaluation Methods Advisory Panel (EMAP) annual report for 2023! This (Northern) fall, I plan to contribute to the European Evaluation Society conference in Rimini, and the DeGEval one in Postdam (near Berlin). More info to follow…

Better terms of reference (TORs) for better evaluations!

The terms of reference set the stage for an evaluation. If that stage is shoddy, it might collapse mid-play. If it is too narrow, don’t expect the play to be grand. The TOR are the place where people who commission evaluations can determine its course. It is the single document you can be certain any evaluator will study before starting to work.  Investing in clear, comprehensive, yet inspiring TOR will yield more useful evaluations. Watch my blog for future tips on this subject. Or book me for a „PME clinic“ on TOR development coaching.  

The Berlin evaluation roundtable is up and running

The Berliner Evaluationsstammtisch (BEST), an informal roundtable that counts more than 50 members as of February 2024, has had monthly meetings at varying weekdays and locations since July 2023. Berliners, have a look at my German page for updates! We have also started a LinkedIn group – get in touch with me here or via the LinkedIn page if you wish to be added to the mailing list. Come and join us if you’re in Berlin!
