5 “raisons d’être” de l’évaluation

Un bon point de départ pour un débat, qui peut en dire long sur la conception de l’évaluation par chacun.

  1. C’est en enjeu d’amélioration, pas de preuve
  2. Il est question de contribution, pas d’attribution
  3. C’est pour apprendre à plusieurs, pas tout seul dans son coin
  4. Cela va au-delà de son petit dispositif
  5. C’est embrasser l’erreur

Ces points sont tirés d’un rapport de l’ONG américain “Grantmakers for Effective Organizations“, guide pour l’évaluation : Lead, Plan, Organize and Share. En anglais dans le texte ça donne:

SHIFTING HOW WE THINK
ABOUT EVALUATION
In the 2009 publication Evaluation in Philanthropy, GEO and the Council on Foundations outlined an approach
grantmakers should take to evaluation:
1. It’s about improvement, not just proof. Evaluation is not solely about tracking the results of past investments; it is also about learning how to do a better job achieving the goals you share with grantees and other partners.
2. It’s about contribution, not attribution. Evaluation is a way to learn about the range of factors that can affect progress on complex issues and to consider how a specific intervention may or may not contribute to change.
3. It’s about learning with others, not alone. Evaluation means embracing attitudes and practices that ensure grantmakers are working with others to gather information and data and to draw lessons from
their work.
4. It’s about going beyond the individual grant. Evaluation is a tool for improving foundation wide performance and for clarifying (and adjusting, if necessary) a grantmaker’s mission, goals and objectives.
5. It’s about embracing failure. Evaluation
can help grantmakers learn from their mistakes by capturing lessons about what happened and why and how the grantmaker and its partners can achieve better results
in the future.
