This article revisits data collected during previous research conducted by Hurteau and Houle (2008). At the time, the researchers were not able to account for the evaluator’s personal skills to pilot an evaluation, the results of which were acceptable to the stakeholders, and to conduct a comprehensive analysis, for lack of an appropriate theoretical framework. By introducing the concept of practical wisdom, House (2015) offers them the opportunity to do so. The author defines this concept as “... doing the right thing in the special circumstances of performing the job” (p. 88). In addition, Schwartz and Sharpe (2010) offer criteria used to establish its presence. The current approach consisted of analyzing the testimony of an experienced police officer. The results helped to improve our understanding of the concept, highlighting the contribution of Telos (moral values) as well as additional criteria such as the importance of time for reflection and the need to supplement the information where necessary.
