A life cycle metaphor characterizes the evolving relationship between the evaluator and program staff. This framework suggests that common developmental dynamics occur in roughly the same order across groups and settings. There are stage-specific dynamics that begin with Pre-History, which characterize the relationship between the grantees and evaluator. The stages are: (a) Pre-History, (b) Process, (c) Development, (d) Action, (e) Findings/Compilation, and (f) Transition. The common dynamics, expectations, and activities for each stage are discussed.
