Assessing Impact across Policy Domains
January 25, 2011
On December 2, 2010, the Center for Strategic and International Studies hosted a workshop attended by approximately forty experts in impact assessment and performance measurement. By intention this group represented a diverse range of policy focus—from defense and security issues to international development, intelligence, education, and health care. It included representatives from governmental organizations, academia, and the private sector.
The day’s discussion had three primary objectives:
- To generate discussion between communities that address similar issues from different vantage points;
- To provide a forum for enhancing understanding shared measurement challenges and state-of-the-art approaches to addressing them; and
- To develop a network of expertise in support of future interactions.
