Collaborative, Participatory, and Empowerment Evaluation:  Stakeholder Involvement Approaches

“This valuable book both shows and tells on the hot topic of collaborative, participatory, and empowerment approaches. Each 'essentials' chapter gains impact from two chapters illustrating what the principles look like in actual evaluation practice. Beautifully explanatory, memorably demonstrated! The authors emphasize understanding in order to select the most appropriate stakeholder approaches for the situation at hand. Far from claiming the exclusive benefits of any single approach, the book is infused with the spirit of working together. The chapter on commonalities powerfully lays out the features of stakeholder involvement at macro-, mid-, and micro-levels of analysis, creating a strong theory-to-practice bridge for newcomers as well as experts. I wish I could gift-wrap this book and send it express to evaluation practitioners in fields from agronomy to zoology.”

Empowerment Evaluation:  Knowledge and Tools for Self-assessment, Evaluation, Capacity Building, and Accountability

"Empowerment evaluation was to be of the people, for the people, and very much by the people. Our role as evaluators was to be a critical friend, a coach, and a source of technical assistance when it was requested by the self-evaluating communities and organizations. No wonder that in 1993 ‘‘conversations and arguments spilled out into the hallways’’...Read this 2015 edition, particularly for readers new to evaluation who want, in one place, a compendium of what empowerment evaluation is about, a statement of its principles, a set of case examples in diverse settings, and an understanding of where Fetterman, Kaftarian, and Wandersman are at now in their thinking...Splendidly, the results of more than 25 years of dedicated hard work and diligent thought are being shared with us. My recommendation remains, unequivocally and appreciatively: This book belongs on our shelves. Get it, read it, and, as appropriate, use it."

—Lois-ellin Datta, PhD, President, Datta Analysis, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

 

Empowerment Evaluation Principles in Practice

"Since its introduction by David Fetterman in 1994, empowerment evaluation has spread like wildfire across the globe.  From disadvantaged schools and communities to NASA and to corporate offices in South Africa, the 10 principles of empowerment evaluation are being embraced and applied to foster self-evaluation and self-determination.  What is it about empowerment evaluation that appeals so much to evaluation clients and stakeholders from all walks of life?  The answer lies in this new volume, the most comprehensive, readable, and up-to-date treatment of this evaluation approach.  I highly recommend this text to practicing evaluators, evaluation scholars, and instructors and students interested in learning about new evaluation theories for improving practice and learning to conduct effective empowerment evaluations."

--Stewart I. Donaldson, Dean, School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences, Claremont Graduate University 

 

 

 

Empowerment Evaluation in the Digital Villages

"In Empowerment Evaluation in the Digital Villages: Hewlett Packard’s $15 Million Race Towards Social Justice, David M. Fetterman presents the story of three digital villages working towards “bridging the digital divide.” That is, three diverse, low-income communities, using substantial grant funding from Hewlett Packard, embarked on projects aimed to help their members access and productively use the Internet and technology...The book is highly inspirational, showing that large-scale change is possible while viewing it through a realistic lens to see that it is also challenging and takes time...Empowerment Evaluation in the Digital Villages is a well-organized book that makes impressive use of central imagery to engage readers. It did a rather good job of convincing me that empowerment evaluation would be a positive force on many communities."

-- Adina Jacobson

 

Ethnography: Step by Step

"Fetterman explains in sequential fashion how to do an ethnographic study. He describes ethnography as "the art and science of describing a group or culture" (p. 11) The first step in the process is for the researcher to enter the field of study with an open mind. In attempting to describe a setting, there is no one acceptable standard. Multiple interpretations of reality exist. A study is one person's view of a given group, at a particular time. Although this limitation is a given, an ethnographer should seek to be holistic in presenting a study's findings (p. 21). An ethnographic study would include both structure and function. Structure is the social structure or configuration of the group. Function is the social relations among group members. Like systems theory, relationships are significant components of an ethnographic study. Symbolic communication is significant in revealing what is important to the people being studied. As an observer, a researcher using this approach is a human instrument. There are some biases, but the more experience one develops, the better one can develop his or her skills of observation. Fetterman goes on to talk about the difference between writing good field notes and writing the final report. In all the book clearly shows how to go about the process of doing an ethnographic study."

-- Dr. W.G. Covington, Jr.
