Is it still summer? In some parts of the world. Is it still 2022? Only on my to-do list.
A prominent item on my summer list was the return of EvalBlog. But there was just too much interesting work and too little time to share it while the days were warm.
Now I have the chance. And my labors have given me a great deal to write about. New methods related to social impact management and measurement. New papers on topics ranging from value for money to scaling impact. And some new ideas that, I believe, are more than a bit unusual. I’m anxious to share all of it.
To get a taste of what I’m working on, here are some of my upcoming events and a few I recently completed.

Social Impact Measurement Week
29 January to 04 February 2023
It’s Social Impact Measurement TIG Week at AEA365, a daily blog sponsored by the American Evaluation Association (AEA).
I contributed one of the posts: How to Defend Against Impact Washing with Zones of Greater Scrutiny (ZOGS).
I introduced the idea at EVAL2022 in New Orleans, which is AEA’s annual conference. I will post more of my presentations on this site.
Stellenbosch, South Africa (and elsewhere)

A much-needed break from work and a chance to celebrate the wedding of my coauthor, Robert McLean.
