| Book Description: |
Any public or private organization that "lives in public" must now evaluate its activities, be evaluated by others, or evaluate others. But, data from an array of settings and countries indicate that very few evaluations result in any changing action. So, why insist on evaluating? And, what worthwhile results emerge from evaluation? This book answers these questions, using evaluation and organizational theory to offer a fresh perspective.
