Blog: Why bother involving people in evaluation?
In this blog Martha Lester-Cribb gives you a flavour of the 'Why bother involving people in evaluation?' workshop that she delivered at Looking back Looking forward conference in May2015.
There’s a really good chance that you already ask your service users to tell you what they think about your project. Hopefully, you even listen to what they say and are open to tweaking your service on that basis!
But... have you ever thought about the potential benefits and challenges of involving the people you work with in:
- defining your project outcomes
- designing information collection tools
- collecting and recording data
- analysing information
- compiling reports and/or
- deciding what actions (if any) to take on the basis of what you learn?
