Development Professional Practice Seminar : A practical evaluation model for grassroots organisations. Fri, 2014-11-28 18:06

Eleanor Harrison (Global Giving), visited SOAS on November 12th 2014 to share the learning from GlobalGiving UK’s Volunteer Evaluation Programme and their new data analytics work to improve organisational effectiveness. The Programme recruits and trains experienced volunteers to conduct practical organisational assessments through 4 day field visits to GlobalGiving partners. The in depth assessments provide practical recommendations, resources and observations to help organisations improve on their own terms. This information is then fed into GlobalGiving UK’s planning for its online peer learning network for grassroots organisations – ensuring sustained impact of the evaluations. The data is also used with multiple another data points for our “Effectivess Dashboard” – which pulls data on organisational behaviour in real-time – helping organisations to benchmark themselves against their peers and explore how to improve and do better.
