Developmental Evaluation
Getting to grips with evaluation’s role in finding ideas that work and accelerating the positive change we seek 

At this year’s National CES Conference in Toronto, attendees talked a lot about Developmental Evaluation (DE) and moving it beyond the conceptual to driving the real work of evaluators. We are excited to announce our panel guest speakers on “Developmental Evaluation: Getting to grips in evaluation’s role in finding ideas that work and accelerating the positive change we seek…”
