I led a 2-day principles-focused evaluation workshop in December 2017. At the closing check-out, someone shared that the workshop felt like un-drowning. It gave me chills and a new bar for what workshops can and should be. Katherine Hillman of Flux, a Now Orleans-based consultancy focused on research, monitoring, and evaluation shared deeper reflections with me this week before posting them on the flux blog.
I encourage you to read the rest of her reflections. http://www.fluxrme.com/blog/2018/4/9/principles-focused-evaluation
