Ships in 3-5 business days
Networks are increasingly prevalent in the social change sector. Many of us have invested time and resources in network development on the assumption that networks are important vehicles to advance our goals. But how do we know if our networks are really working? And what can we do to improve their performance?
In 2007 and 2008, the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation and the Centre for Social Innovation convened a diverse group of social change practitioners for a series of meetings on network evaluation. Together, we explored the unique character of networks and developed a Framework for evaluating their health and impact. This book contains the results of our exploration.
