“Evaluation and strategic planning really go hand-in-hand”
Since the late 1990’s, on a tip from several American evaluation colleagues, we have been writing funding grants in partnership with program managers. This makes a lot of sense because evaluators are known to develop clearer and more realistic program objectives (Weiss, 19987). Similarly, bringing-on an evaluator in writing strategic priority and direction statements is highly beneficial. Evaluators, and our team in particular, are highly experienced in observing the operation of a diverse and vast portfolio of program, services and interventions. We have completed high-level strategic business plans, such as the First Nations and Inuit Home and Community Care 10 year Strategic Business Plan, 2013, as well a local agency, the Facilitation of the Strategic Business Plan for Anishnawbe Health Toronto, 2015. Another strategic plan — one that was close to our hearts because it was perfectly in line with our personal priorities — was Creating a Common Path: Hearing from Practitioners who serve First Nations, Inuit, and Métis children and youth and families, 2012. We have also engaged youth in the production of the Action Strategy for Responsible Gambling among First Nations youth.
