    Systemic Management of the Six Levels of Evaluation in the Public Sector

    Led by the Washington Evaluators and the International Development Evaluation Association, March 14th, 12:00-1:30pm ET


    Discussion Topic:

    Public interventions are carried out in an interrelated and multi-dimensional way. To discern their diversity and complementarity, we will resort to a stratification of six levels of interventions. Each level requires the application of specific appropriate evaluation concepts to evaluate their performance.

    The first level is that of administrative activities carried out through targeted procedures. The second level is that of projects that involve several stakeholders interacting according to a given scenario. The third level is multidimensional programming carried out in partnership. The fourth level addresses the institutional effectiveness of actors involved in the public sector. The fifth level is one of interactive strategies and the sixth is public policy impacts.

    During the workshop we will examine the intentionality of each level and the tools needed at each level and the inter-level linkages for a better systemic use of evaluation within the public sector.

    Jean Serge Quesnel, CE, FCES was director of the evaluation offices of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the Interamerican Development Bank (IADB), and the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).

He chaired the United Nations Taskforce that drafted the Evaluation Norms and Standard for the UN System. He is the founding coordinator of the Francophone Evaluation Network.

    Mastering System Approach, a Requisite for Evaluation

    Led by the Washington Evaluators and the International Development Evaluation Association, April 18th, 12:00-1:30pm ET


    Discussion Topic:

    Evaluation has evolved over time and is now in its fifth phase. It went through the phases focusing on measurement, describing strengths & weaknesses of the evaluand, providing a judgement on the merit of the intervention, and evaluating in a participatory fashion. Nowadays, the challenge is to conduct evaluation from a systemic perspective when addressing complex and transformative change.

    Hence there is a need for evaluators to master the key concepts behind system thinking to plot the right approach required when evaluating complex and interrelated endeavors. During the webinar, we will review the fundamental concepts of systemic thinking. Also, we will look at characteristics of complex system and have an insight on their dynamics. We will use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as examples of complex systems and reflect on the challenges of evaluating them.
