The Development of Evaluation

December 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Brett Keller recently shared a link to Michele Alacevich’s paper describing the development of the World Bank’s evaluation sector. 

“It took the World Bank 20 years to set up an evaluation outfit — a new paper by Michele Alacevich tells the story of how that came to pass. It’s a story about, amongst other things, the tension between academia and programs, between context-specific knowledge and generalizable lessons.”

The post and the paper are worth a read.
