Parting Thoughts on Foundation Evaluation.
Wisely, D. Susan
American Journal of Evaluation, v23 n2 p159-64 Spr 2002
Discusses four reasons why progress in evaluation in private foundations has been so slow and intermittent. These include: (1) inflated claims for the power of evaluation as a guide; (2) foundations' distance from the consequences of their actions; (3) sensitivity to hostile criticism and the difficulties of learning from legitimate criticism; and (4) the tyranny of a culture of success and the challenges of speaking truth to power.
