An analysis of evaluation of organized development work, Evaluation Frameworks for Development Programs and Projects explores all major issues and aspects of evaluation, chief among which are context, perspectives, methods, and management. Unique in its interconnected analysis of all significant dimensions of evaluations, it links evaluation of development schemes with planning, implementation and monitoring of these schemes. The author utilizes the conventional project paradigm (the "logical framework") but transcends its limitations and enriches it by drawing on more complex and dynamic processes of development. While the specific focus of the books is on development programs and projects on developing countries, the ideas and arguments apply to other, broader contexts as well. Written in a accessible, largely jargon-free style, the book makes use of creative diagrams to elucidate perspectives and processes of development. Evaluation Frameworks for Development Programs and Projects will be of interest to practitioners in development work, including people who conduct evaluations, planners, managers, and administrators at different levels. It will also be of interest to teaching institutions and students in development planning and management and in other fields of the social sciences.
