Event Description

Nynke de Witte (OSCE, Head of Evaluation/Deputy Director OIO)

The 25th Event of the Vienna Evaluation Network will take place on January 26, 2022, 4-5.30pm CET


As existing evaluation systems have often emerged from accountability concerns, the evaluation processes and practices they have generated are not necessarily fit for strategic decision-making and learning purposes of evaluations. In an attempt to strengthen the ‘strategic’ value of evaluations, several countries have in recent years reformed their evaluation systems to ensure that evaluation produce credible insights that can inform strategic decision-making and learning. Nynke will share some of her experiences leading a government-wide evaluation reform program between 2018 and 2021 at the Dutch Ministry of Finance. She will explain how the evaluation reform program was developed and implemented, and share some lessons learned and good practices that could be relevant for other countries and organizations. Among others, she will provide insights on the introduction of Strategic Evaluation Agenda’s within the Dutch government, and share her experience with strategic evaluation instruments, such as spending reviews and public value reviews. At the end of the presentation she will reflect on the similarities and differences of working on improving evaluation practices within a national government context as compared to an international organization. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and exchange of experiences.
