Collaborative Evaluation in Practice
One of the reasons some groups are more effective than others is collaboration; people implement evaluative decisions more willingly if they have collaborated on those decisions. This book introduces real-world applications of the Model for Collaborative Evaluations (MCE) in business, nonprofit, and education to make collaborative evaluations more accessible to you. The MCE is a systematic framework that revolves around a set of six interactive components specific to conducting a collaborative evaluation. It represents a practical attempt to capture the essence of collaborative evaluation from various perspectives in order to offer a valuable understanding of different stances that often arise when using this type of approach. A multidisciplinary team of authors enriches the diverse perspectives of this book with their international and cross-cultural expertise. The intention is to share a deeper understanding of how this approach is applied to build collaborative relationships within an evaluation, recognizing the level of collaboration will vary in each situation.
