A webinar for Pacific Council members on how to apply measurement and evaluation practices in the government, non-profit, and business sectors.
We will define measurement and evaluation and explore the differences between the two, address the importance of measurement and evaluation in any work environment, including government, non-profit, and business project planning, explore various types of evaluation practices, and provide insight into how measurement and evaluation methods can help members measure impact in their own organization. This session is recommended for any member interested in using measurement and evaluation metrics to study the impact of their work and increase the chances for success.
