    • Abstract:
      Organizations frequently need to implement new programs, policies, or other initiatives in order to gain or maintain a competitive edge in today's rapidly changing marketplace. Evaluation research is the application of scientific methodology and research techniques to determine whether or not a program has met its stated goals. There are several steps in the program development life cycle: goal development, planning (including planning how the program will be evaluated), implementation, evaluation, and feedback based on the evaluation. In choosing how best to evaluate the effectiveness of a program, policy, or other initiative, the organization must develop appropriate criteria of success ranging from the reaction of affected personnel to the impact of the initiative on society or the environment.
