Premise – the most underused opportunity is engaging evaluation partners and stakeholders upfront, before developing the methodology and conducting the evaluation. Ask them, “what are we going to evaluate? What does success look like?”
This conversation-style webinar will look at how and why we might conduct engagement with clients and stakeholders prior to developing the evaluation questions and methodology. Join this discussion to discuss how engagement prior to evaluation design and conduct might help mitigate evaluation challenges down the line; how to gauge and negotiation stakeholders’ level of interest and influence; and how to co-design. An innovative engagement method for stakeholders and decisionmakers will also be presented.
Questioning behaviours, structures, institutions, and façons de faire, Eva has worked for federal, provincial, and international clients in the areas of evaluation, facilitation and stakeholder engagement, performance measurement, and research. She is passionate about socially important work and rigorous research, constantly looking to see how to foster conversation and build bridges to share knowledge that has traditionally been held by small groups of people.
Eva holds an Honours B.S.Soc. with a double major in Public Administration and Criminology and an M.A. in Public Administration from the University of Ottawa. She is a Credentialed Evaluator (CE) with the Canadian Evaluation Society and a Certified Management Consultant (CMC). Eva is perfectly bilingual (English and French) and also speaks several other languages. In her other world, Eva is an artist and adventurer. She looks to bring questioning and creativity into her consulting practice.
Louise A Harris PhD CMC CCMP
How do you make change happen in organizations with better results, less effort and less stress? That is the burning question that has fueled Dr. Louise Harris' passion through out her career as an enterprise architect, certified management consultant and certified change management practitioner. For over 30 years Louise has led and advised complex organizational change in various industries. She found that involving more people earlier in defining meaningful change outcomes and viable change scope was a critical success factor that was often resisted by change leaders.
Inspired by the challenge of how to overcome this resistance Louise embarked on a PhD to develop better tools for collectively designing and executing transformational change. Integrating neuroscience and cognitive psychology with a dash of system design principles she was able to help the healthcare groups participating in the research to overcome significant change barriers and achieve results beyond their expectations. Louise founded the Change Design Institute to continue her research and train, coach and advise change leaders and their people in collective organization transformation.
