Bridging the Strategic Execution Gap: Call for Presenters Open - 2018 ASP Annual Conference

Posted on:

2018 ASP Annual Conference | Call for Presenters

The 2018 Annual Conference program committee is seeking dynamic speakers for 3 or 6 hour pre conference masterclass workshops (Wednesday, May 9, 2018) and 75 minute conference breakout sessions (Thursday, May 10 and Friday, May 11, 2018).

Bridging the Strategic Execution Gap

Across sectors of our disrupted economy, there is growing awareness that, as key leaders formulate strategy for their organizations, a gap in understanding, performance, and execution often occurs for those charged with implementing the initiatives flowing from the strategy. This gap invariably translates into unwanted costs, lost opportunities and the failure to execute.

The 2018 Conference is an opportunity to invite professional colleagues from related disciplines to join with us to establish a better understanding of the strategy execution gap. From this shared understanding, we are looking for new insights, tools and techniques that will help each profession bridge their vector of the gap.

Submission deadline: Friday, October 13 at 5 PM ET

Capacity Building in Impact Evaluation: Counterfactual and Theory Based Approaches

Posted on:
  • Training
  • Seminar

Barcelona (ES), 30 November - 1 December 2017

 

What is this course about?
This training course aims to enhance participants’ understanding of how to commission, manage and monitor evaluations. It will increase your ability to design, manage and monitor the evaluations – funded with or without EU funds – conducted by your organisation.

The main aim is not to train participants as expert practitioners, but to put them in a position where they are confident to commission and manage evaluations, understand the basics of certain tools and approaches, and are able to consider the advantages and disadvantages that justify the use of some above others. Consequently, they will be able to design briefs for (internal or external) evaluators, interact with them competently and assess the quality of their work.

In particular, the seminar should help participants understand the two most prominent approaches to evaluation today: counterfactual (also known as experimental or quasi-experimental) approaches, and theory-based approaches. The seminar will demonstrate in practical terms what counterfactual approaches can and cannot do and the conditions in which they can be used. It will also show how theory-based approaches can provide a good alternative when such conditions are not met and discuss ways in which the two approaches can be combined.
