Start your review of Getting to What Matters: How to Design and Develop Evaluation
I read this book as part of my duties to help a nonprofit organization get to the "heart" of their work, through research, design, measurement, evaluation. This little book was certainly more informative than my graduate school textbooks on research. The author breaks down the steps and he describes getting to the heart of what matters in a practical way. I really appreciated the content. I would have rated this a 5, had it not been for grammatical/spelling errors.
Must read for anyone working in nonprofits, especially if you don't have any evaluation training. A clear guide to how to design evaluation for programs that get to the heart of what you are trying to impact. Highly recommend.
