Evaluation is the systematic assessment of the design, implementation or results of an initiative for the purposes of learning or decision-making.
As the Canadian Evaluation Society completes its 2012-2015 programming cycle, the Board of Directors began a strategic planning process in November 2014 to map out an agenda for the next three years. A new set of CES priorities, organizational vision and mission were identified, tested and validated in the spring of 2015 through consultation with Members and Chapters across the country.
As a national professional society, the primacy of services and value to members is the foundation for the CES Strategic Plan 2015-2018 which seeks to build on past momentum while tapping into emerging opportunities, and expanding organizational capacity and profile.
The following strategic priorities will frame CES programs and services from 2015 to 2018, and are explained herein:
- Increase the value of evaluation
- Engage, grow and diversify our membership
- Advance the professionalization of evaluation
