Designing and Implementing Effective Evaluations provides extensive  real-life examples of program evaluations that illustrate the various  elements and steps in conducting a successful evaluation. The detailed  and diverse range of case studies show the common elements, methods,  approaches, and processes of program evaluations, while also  demonstrating the way that good evaluators adapt and tailor those  methods to the specific characteristics and needs of a given program.

The  chapters explore the process of problem solving while navigating  multiple stakeholders, competing agendas, and varying environments. The  book introduces conversations concerning how to adapt evaluation  processes and concepts with culturally different individuals and  communities. It discusses the role of culture in navigating a meaningful  evaluation process when significant cultural differences exist between  the evaluator and individuals that make up the organization.

The  text is a vital resource for postgraduate students in program evaluation  courses in Psychology, Education, Public Health, Social Work and  related fields
