Our Approach to Program Evaluation
Karl F. Seidman Consulting Services uses a three-dimensional approach to program evaluation to maximize the evaluation’s strategic value to your organization. The three dimensions of the evaluation include:
Defining the “Program Model” is a key first step to inform a sound evaluation. This “Program Model” is a concise, logical flowchart of your program’s strategy that relates your program “outputs” to the desired economic development “outcomes”. It identifies the chain of actions, or pathway, needed for your program to be effective and clarifies the appropriate impact measures for both “outputs” and “outcomes”. By elaborating the critical path to achieve your goals, the program model also helps identify key intermediate results, operating issues and relationships to evaluate.
