But how can the results of training that uses these strategies be measured effectively and cogently? Using real-world case studies, and packed with stories that relate the concepts to real-life situations, the book shows how the evaluation model works in a variety of settings including a nonprofit lobbying group, a school of public health and community medicine, and a literacy group. It takes readers from an overview of evaluation and the genesis of the Accountability Process, through practical applications, to discussions of the who, why, and what of evaluation, and the future uses of the theory and practice.
