What Did We Learn from the Case Studies about Managing Evaluation?
Baizerman, Michael; Compton, Donald W.
New Directions for Evaluation, n121 p79-86 Spr 2009

There are lessons on a geography of managing, managing as organizational work, the notions of "competency" and "expertise," and managing evaluation as professional work. Dreyfus and Dreyfus (2004) offer a framework for an introductory discussion of the essentials of expertise, as does Ryle's distinction (1949) between "knowing that" (about) and "knowing how" (to).
