Program Design TIG - Home

Welcome to the Program Design TIG website!

The Program Design TIG provides a forum for spirited dialogue about this evolving area of evaluation, asking questions about design as a product to evaluate; participation by the evaluator in the design process; the conceptual overlap between design, participatory, and developmental evaluation; and assisting international development in its intersection between monitoring and evaluation and design.

The TIG addresses challenges such as evaluator independence, the evaluation methodology suited for the various forms of design, and conducting research on evaluation and design. In summary, the Program Design TIG holds that tighter links between evaluation and the planning phase of a program’s life cycle will enhance evaluation’s contribution to sustainable impactful programs.
