DE Guiding Principles: Co-Creation


Develop the innovation and evaluation together – interwoven, interdependent, iterative, and co-created – so that developmental evaluation becomes part of the change process.

  • It’s vital to make time developing and revisiting shared understandings of values, principles, and other key concepts.

  • Trusted relationships are the business of Developmental Evaluation and the basis of the collaborative and developmental process inherent in innovation.  

Questions to ask ourselves:

  • Do we understand the differences in power in a particular situation?

  • How can we gain more insight or understanding about this?

  • What responsibilities do we have in relation to this power?

  • How do we acknowledge the history, experience and wisdom that exists within the current situation?
