This webinar is part of a monthly series offered by Utilization-Focused Evaluation in partnership with Blue Marble Evaluation. The publication of the new 5th edition of Utilization-Focused Evaluation provides an opportunity to revisit the interconnection between Blue Marble Evaluation and Utilization-Focused Evaluation. In essence, Blue Marble evaluations should be utilization-focused so Utilization-Focused Evaluation provides the overarching framework for Blue Marble Evaluation.
This month, we will be digging into the seventh and eight operating principles of U-FE:
Principle 7: Strategize Process Use.
This principle calls us to facilitate process use with intentionality. Utilization-focused evaluators should be aware of and strategic about how being involved in the evaluation affects those involved.
Principle 8: Adapt.
This principle calls us to watch for, be alert to, and adapt to changed circumstances, shifting priorities, turnover among intended users, reallocation of resources, changed timelines, and other factors that emerge over time.
