Learning Circles: Evaluation Learning Circle
Abstract: The Leadership Learning Community has had a deep interest in strengthening the evaluation of leadership programs by sharing evaluation tools and resources, developing common indicators of impact, and developing shared understandings among funders, program staff, and evaluators about the value and use of evaluation. In 2002, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation funded a scan to learn how leadership programs are evaluating their outcomes and impacts. LLC was instrumental in supporting this research, which included interviews and document review of 55 leadership programs. One of the scan recommendations was for the leadership development community (including those who fund, run, evaluate and study leadership programs) to consider developing a shared learning agenda.
