About

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

Overview

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 Kennedy School 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 Leading Successful Programs curriculum will explore:

  • 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
