Systemic Evaluation

Last updated Mar 7, 2023 | Originally published Mar 7, 2023

Systemic evaluation is the developmental evaluation (Guijt et al., 2012) of systemic change.

Techniques for systemic evaluation combine conventional principles and tools of developmental evaluation with concepts from systemic design. These techniques provide changemakers with the ability to assess the accuracy and completeness of their theories of systemic change and action (Murphy & Jones, 2020). They also allow evaluators to examine the progress of systemic strategies (Murphy et al., 2021).
