Program evaluation is defined by the Government Accounting Office (GAO) as “…individual systematic studies conducted periodically or on an ad hoc basis to assess how well a program is working” (U.S. GAO 1998, p. 3). An evaluation should be purposive, analytic, and empirical (Maxfield 2001). That is, its purpose should be known, it should be based on logic, and the results should be based on experience and data.
At PTG, we are passionate about evaluating programs to help our clients see the impact their programs have on achieving the desired outcomes for their organizations.
