Evaluating Social Innovation


Hallie Preskill, Tanya Beer

The philanthropic sector has been experimenting with innovative grantmaking in the hopes of triggering significant and sustainable change. FSG’s latest research report, collaboratively written with the Center for Evaluation Innovation, challenges grantmakers to explore the use of Developmental Evaluation when evaluating complex, dynamic, and emergent initiatives. The Knight Foundation is an example of an organization which is embracing this approach as described in their blog post.

Thank you, Russ, for this wonderful endorsement of the paper. It sounds like developmental evaluation may be the perfect choice for evaluating your executive developmental leadership program. It should allow you to observe and document changes in relationships, patterns of interaction, unexpected consequences, outcomes, and effects of the program as participants learn and transfer their learning to their schools. I wish you all the best!
