Does it work? Or doesn't it?

Download: 

Like it or not, the future of community economic development turns on evaluations of our organizations and initiatives. If they "achieve change" by someone's definition, they work; if they don't achieve that change, they don't work. If practitioners don't have a say in the process, others will, regardless of their familiarity with the sector. So why is evaluation such a worrisome chore? In this special edition, practitioners explain how to apply evaluation like any other CED tool, to advance local revitalization and empowerment.

  • Why Evaluate?
  • The Three Levels of Outcome
  • The Social Return on Investment
  • Are Outcomes the Best Outcome?
  • Incrementality
  • Giving Evaluation Back to the People
  • CED Self-Evaluation
  • The "Who" of Evaluation
