In all organizations, managers like you are under increasing pressure to prove their programs—and, by extension, their leadership—are effective. But what constitutes reliable and valid evidence of effectiveness and how can it be generated to assess a program’s effectiveness? What data should be collected? How should managers use it?
Leading Successful Programs: Using Evidence to Assess Effectiveness is an executive program that will help you answer these critical questions. We will challenge you to rethink your programs’ goals and reassess how you gather, evaluate and use data to determine their effectiveness. The curriculum will also equip you with the tools you need to design policy and implement more effective programs.
Better Decisions Mean Better Programs
Designed by Harvard Kennedy School faculty, Leading Successful Programs considers many types of evaluations—including design, process and impact—as well a wide range of methodologies. Special attention is paid to the use of data from evaluations and other types of evidence to help you provide better leadership and make more effective decisions about your programs.
