I just came back from a wonderful experience at the Canadian Evaluation Society's annual conference, Evaluation for the World We Want, CES/SCÉ 2015.  I was happy that my presentation on Measuring Collaboration was well-received.  It turns out that I'm not the only one struggling to figure out what collaboration really means and how to identify the appropriate tools for measuring it.  I've been collecting a list of tools for measuring collaboration as I come across them.  Please share your tools for measuring collaboration and I'll add them.  The best thing about #EvalC2015 was how much everyone shared- because we're all in this together!

My favourite lessons from CES 2015:

1. Include legislation in the logic model to ensure it gets tracked (Nancy Carter and Robert Chatwin)
2. Government is responsible for evaluating the value of programs- did they provide a public good, as is the goal, not the dollar value (Mirianaud Oswald Agbadome)
3. Paradigm shifts happen.  Evaluation can lead to systems change. 'coeur et rigeur' (Laure Waridel)
