Evaluation Learning Circles: A Sole Proprietor's Evaluation Capacity-Building Strategy
Cohen, Carolyn
New Directions for Evaluation, n111 p85-93 Fall 2006
This paper presents a case study which illustrates the author's experience as a sole proprietor taking on the collegial roles of both learning partner and coach, using an evaluation capacity-building strategy she called an evaluation learning circle (ELC). Facilitating the ELC was one of a variety of tasks she conducted as part of a multiyear client relationship. In this chapter, she first outlines the approach, then identifies elements leading to its success, and finally discusses the professional benefits of this replicable practice for independent consultants, particularly sole proprietors.
