Enhancing Evaluation Use free pdf Evaluation by and for Organizations: Strategies for Enhancing Quality and Use concentrates on evaluations carried out by and/or on behalf of governmental and non-governmental organizations. Its aim is to help organizations become more focused on using evaluation to improve policies, strategies, programming and delivery of public and communal services. Existing theories of how this should be done are compared with the practical experiences of a range of national and international, government and non-governmental agencies. The book is written from the insider's perspective on what helps or hinders making evaluations more relevant and useful to organizations and their needs.
