Designed to take readers behind the scenes of real evaluations and introduce them to the issues faced and decisions made by notable evaluators in the field, this book builds on ‘Exemplars’, a popular section in the American Journal of Evaluation (AJE), in which a well-known evaluator is interviewed about an evaluation he or she has conducted. Through a dialogue between the evaluator and the interviewer, the reader learns about the problems the evaluator faced in conducting the evaluation and the choices and compromises they made.
