|Subject Overview:|| |
The subject is based on an assumption that leaders and managers need timely systematic information for use in decision-making about programs [and policies] for which they are responsible. The focus is on internal evaluations within organisations [for example schools, government agencies and businesses] which have adopted a learning organisation focus. Students will be exposed to program planning techniques such as Logical Framework Analysis, program logic, and evaluability assessment. Other topics include evaluative techniques to develop and improve programs.

Students will be exposed to a range of data management approaches and reporting via case studies used during class sessions.
