WHAT IS EVALUATION?

Evaluation is now an expected part of all project management. Organisations of all types and sizes are under increasing pressure to evaluate their results and account for the money they invest in their people and projects and programme. The demand to be able to do this is rising rapidly, particularly for projects and programmes that:

  • Have a long life cycle
  • Are linked to key organisational goals and objectives
  • Are relatively expensive
  • Have high internal or external visibility
  • Address large target audiences.

The Professional Certificate in Human Capital Investment Planning provides an introduction to the framework, tools and disciplines required to plan for impact, and then to track it and report its achievement. It constructs a sound basis in evaluation planning and introduces Theory of Change, amongst other techniques. These are then addressed in more depth in the Professional Certificate in Evaluating Human Capital Investment. This moves into more detail in terms of theory and application. It adds data collection and analytics covers advanced sections of the approach, and relates all learning to each participant’s chosen project or programme.

Further details of our approach can be found on the Our Approach page.
