This workshop delves into how to plan, manage, and conduct successful facilitations in performance measurement and evaluation. Participants will have opportunities to learn the fundamentals of facilitation and its application to performance measurement and evaluation processes, including developing logic models and their related indicators and targets.
This workshop can be taken on its own or in conjunction with Key Results (Logic Models and DRFs) for PM and Evaluation (offered on February 11) or Performance Indicators for Performance Measurement and Evaluation (offered on February 12). All of these modules can be used as continuing education credits for Credentialed Evaluators.
