RE: Reporting evaluation results or communicating evaluation results? | Eval Forward

Engaging stakeholders begins at a program's earliest stages (conception) and continues through closure (and evaluation). This should serve as a key communication indicator. Evaluators should broadly involve relevant stakeholders through an effective communication process to ensure precise and useful feedback.

Evaluators should present their findings clearly and provide actionable recommendations. A clear and compelling presentation of findings coupled with targeted recommendations tailored for different stakeholder groups can maximize the potential for evaluation insights to drive meaningful action.
Following the completion of an evaluation report, stakeholders should be informed of the findings in their own language and given an opportunity to provide final feedback.
