Seminar Overview:

Trying to get that grant or contract?! You need to have a rigorous, evidence-based plan to secure that funding. Almost all non-scientific evaluations will be unawarded or quickly dismissed.

Fields such as sociology, psychology, education, human development, marketing, business, biology, medicine, political science, communication, governmental and nonprofit agencies, will benefit from the seminar.

Seminar Topics:

  • Program theory and Logic Models
  • Needs assessment
  • Project Budgeting
  • Monitoring progress and measuring outcomes
  • Cost-effectiveness vs. Cost-benefit analysis
  • Time and discounting
  • Sensitivity analysis and risk analysis
  • Sem and decision tree extensions of cost-benefit analysis.
  • Reporting writing
