General Session: Data Geeks Disperse! Developing a Culture of Evaluation
Starts @ 8:30 am PT | 9:30 am MT | 10:30 am CT | 11:30 am ET
One of the biggest challenges about an event like RIPL—where you are sharing an immersive learning experience with people who already care about evaluation—is going back to your home organization. You have passion and excitement to share about the importance of evaluation, but your colleagues may not be particularly interested in hearing about it. Fortunately, the difficulties that come with developing a culture of evaluation track with classic change management considerations, and there are ways to deal with them. We’ll talk about some of the major data-related hurdles you can expect when you get home and explore possible strategies for your success.
