The Faster Forward Fund
Scriven, Michael
Journal of MultiDisciplinary Evaluation, v7 n15 p313-317 Feb 2011
In this paper, the author talks about Faster Forward Fund (3F). The basic idea of 3F is to provide support for three approaches within the evaluation field that are not the main foci of AEA activities, or of any other organization as far as is known: (1) to develop ideas that show promise for significantly accelerating the theory or practice of evaluation; (2) to give particular support to efforts that are not part of the natural development of well-accepted paradigms or models; and (3) to give special weighting to those whose development shows significant signs of benefitting people or peoples with serious unmet needs. The author presents two examples of hypothetical proposals that currently seem relevant to the goals of 3F. Other examples of possible proposal topics are presented. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
