How do you know that your organisation or group creates deep social change? Do you work in a complex environment where linear outputs are hard to measure?
Our August 2021 webinar discusses the evaluation methods Outcomes Harvesting and Outcomes Mapping. These evaluation methods focus on people and the deeper and more personal changes made, rather than the actions done by an organisation.
We welcomed Jeph Mathias and Suzanne Andrew who presented this methodology through their evaluation experiences in an international development context, working with global indigenous communities. Reflect on why a people-centred (rather than activity-centred) approach to evaluation is as applicable to your organisation in Aotearoa as it is to snow leopards in the Himalayas or income generation in Cambodia.
Following this half-hour webinar, we invited participants to stay for a half-hour workshop to apply their own context and questions to this topic.
