Eval13 Session 304: The Evaluator and the Right Brain 

10-21-2013 20:01

In his bestselling book, A Whole New Mind, Daniel Pink argues that left-brain analytical skills are no longer sufficient to thrive professionally (in the developed world). Instead, we need more from our right-brain, our creative, empathetic, big picture side. Why? Abundance, automation, and outsourcing. If the future belongs to artists, designers, and storytellers, what does that mean for the evaluator? Do we need to get better at Pink’s aptitudes: Design, story, symphony, empathy, meaning, and play? Do we risk our objectivity and rigor? In truth, we’re already headed in this direction. We’re improving our design skills as we find ways to present and report findings more effectively. We’re getting better at framing projects in terms of big picture questions. And, as always, we strive to make a difference in this world.
