    Evaluation takes place like never before. In education (e.g. grades), in health (e.g. health programs), in the social sector (e.g. client plans), and in the workplace (e.g. leader-evaluation).
    To-day it is difficult to avoid evaluations within the public sector. The perspective varies – either because you are dependent upon evaluations or because you are going to do the evaluation yourself – or perhaps students, patients or clients are going to be evaluated.
    Controversial strategies are found with the field of evaluation – for instance strategies dealing with control, change or development. No matter what – we cannot disregard evaluations – in our roles as leaders, as co-workers/colleagues, consultants or citizens.
    My research deals with the planning, monitoring, development and implementation of evaluations.
