Professor Chris Fox and the Public Service Transformation Network are running a series of six free webinars on Evaluation, which we believe will be of benefit to Academy members.

The first webinar – Getting Started and Theory of Change – was held on 27 March and was well received with 90% of participants finding Chris’s talk engaging, and confirming that they would like to see the next one.


Below are details on the second webinar and you can find a full list of topics covered in the series.

Chris Fox is Professor of Evaluation at Manchester Metropolitan University and Director of the Policy Evaluation Research Unit and in this session he will discuss:-

The purposes of ‘process’ or ‘implementation’ evaluation and different frameworks for process evaluation.
