About

Leading Successful Programs - Using Evidence to Assess Effectiveness is an executive program at Harvard University that will help you answer these critical questions.

Overview

What you will study

  • In all organizations, managers like you are under increasing pressure to prove their programs—and, by extension, their leadership—are effective. 
  • But what constitutes reliable and valid evidence of effectiveness and how can it be generated to assess a program’s effectiveness? What data should be collected? How should managers use it?

Learning Outcomes 

In its goal to help you understand how to measure and evaluate program effectiveness, this one-week Leading Successful Programs - Using Evidence to Assess Effectiveness program from Harvard University will equip you with:

  • A framework for thinking about various types of evidence—from benchmarking and performance measurement to impact evaluation—and their relationship to one another.
  • Methods for analyzing administrative data to identify potential points for intervention to improve long-term goals.
  • Tools to measure the effectiveness of your program as well as strategies for generating short- and longer-term assessments of the impact of your programs on participants.
  • Tactics for integrating qualitative and quantitative data to assess a program's effectiveness.
  • A deeper understanding of how to make decisions about the best way to spend your limited research budget.

Programme Structure

The program will focus on:

  • The big questions you need to ask about the effectiveness of programs in your organization.
  • How to decide what data should be collected, and when.
  • The kinds of evaluations and other forms of assessment you should conduct.
  • The key methods to evaluate the impact of programs and when each should be used.
  • How you should make decisions about which programs to assess.
  • The role of randomized experiments in evaluating the impact of a program.
  • How you can make sense of mixed method evaluations and then integrate quantitative and qualitative information to design and implement better programs.
