In our recent webinar What Makes Evaluating Complexity Different?, Cris Kutzli from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation and Mona Jhawar from The California Endowment joined Evaluating Complexity authors Hallie Preskill, Srik Gopal, and Katelyn Mack to discuss the 9 propositions from the practice brief.
The webinar was a lively discussion of how these funders of social innovation have put the propositions into practice (register for the recording – $60), and we received so many great questions during the event that we couldn’t answer them all during the live Q&A.
Here, we continue the conversation in a two-part Google Hangout series with the webinar panelists. In the video below, FSG’s Hallie Preskill and Srik Gopal discuss what it means to take a “complexity lens” during evaluation. Next week, Cris Kutzli and Srik Gopal will discuss keeping an “ear to the ground” while evaluating complex initiatives. Please share any additional questions on evaluating complexity in the comments below!
