The production of this scan is an outgrowth of meetings of Greater Washington region grantmakers to explore opportunities for working together to accelerate positive changes in the region. The funders group identified the need to build the leadership capacity in the region and collectively decided to commission a scan to better understand the leadership needs and the strengths and limitations of local leadership and capacity building efforts. They partnered with the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington, an organization committed to building the strength, visibility, and influence of the nonprofit sector.

Handbook of Leadership Development Evaluation External website [view] [more info]

This book provides broad and practical information about how to conduct leadership development evaluations using a variety of approaches, many of which have been recently developed. We have intentionally sought authors from a variety of sectors (nonprofit, academic, for-profit, and governmental agencies) to increase the diversity of perspectives, expertise, and experiences represented in these pages. The target populations and program designs covered in this handbook are also diverse; we believe this book represents a powerful opportunity for cross-program and cross-sector learning. In the rich online companion to the book we offer brief summaries of each of the chapters along with resources for each chapter and links to the resources where possible. This information is available by clicking on the book's section titles or chapter headings. To learn more about the content or ordering the book, visit the companion site now (click on the link below to access the companion site).
