This workshop will focus on implementing strategies into the workplace that support evaluation activities. Discussion will be on 1) concepts of capacity building and a learning organization, 2) understanding what skills are necessary to integrate evaluation into a workplace, 3) managing evaluation anxiety, 4) means of building capacity and skills for evaluation, and 5) the connection of evaluation capacity building with decision making. The workshop will be based on recent literature from evaluation, public sector management and organizational learning. The workshop will also be based on experience working within and teaching in non-profit agencies, provincial and federal departments of government to build evaluation capacity. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the ideas and discussion in the workshop to their own workplace. A workbook and additional resources will be provided to all participants.
