Successful Program Evaluation demystifies the subject and gives the reader tools to develop stronger programs and grant proposals. It doesn't tell how to conduct a full-scale evaluation (most professional evaluators are PhD's), but how to talk to an evaluator, how to to decide if you need one, and if not how to create simple systems to measure project success on your own.
This book is for grantwriters, nonprofit managers, board members and anyone else interested in providing quality services, increasing chances of grant success and strengthening their organization. Evaluating your programs is the key success, in grantwriting and in program delivery. Analyzing program outcomes can help you find areas that need extra attention and implement cost efficiencies or improve service delivery.
