Panel: Systemic Evaluation: A Panel Presentation and Discussion
The panellists will draw on a mixture of theoretical insight and rich practical experience in using systems thinking and complexity ideas for progressing mainstream programme and policy evaluations. The discussion will centre on what helps and hinders systemic evaluation; that is, developmental evaluation where value judgements properly inform the design (ex-ante/ formative) as well as the effects (ex-poste/ summative) of any intervention. The challenges of systemic evaluation are explored from the perspective of different practitioners including policy advisors, policy decision makers, project/programme managers, and commissioners of evaluations.
