Book website says “Collaborative Evaluations is a highly comprehensive and easy-to-follow book for those evaluators who want to engage and succeed in collaborative evaluations. The author presents the Model for Collaborative Evaluations (MCE) with its six major components: (1) identify the situation, (2) clarify the expectations, (3) establish a shared commitment, (4) ensure open communication, (5) encourage best practices, and (6) follow specific guidelines. In clear and simple language, the author outlines key concepts and methods to help master the mechanics of collaborative evaluations.

Each section deals with fundamental factors inside each of the six collaborative evaluation components. In addition, each section provides practical tips for “real-life” applications and step-by-step suggestions or guidelines on how to apply this information. The MCE has emerged from a wide range of collaboration efforts that the author has conducted in the private sector, nonprofit organizations, and institutions of higher education. The author shares her experience and insights regarding this subject in a precise and easy-to-understand fashion, so that the reader can use the information learned from this book immediately.”

One thought on “Collaborative Evaluations Step by Step”

  1. Interesting book probably, but what is Collaborative Evaluation? Is it the same as Participatory Evaluation, where various stakeholders incl beneficiaries are involved in various steps of the evaluation cycle? (Design, collect, analyse etc)?
