Introducing a Blog Series on Assumptions in Program Design and Evaluation

Assumptions drive action.
Assumptions can be recognized or invisible.
Assumptions can be right, wrong, or anywhere in between.
Over time assumptions can atrophy, and new ones can arise.
To be effective drivers of action, assumptions must simplify and distort.

Welcome to our blog series that is dedicated to exploring these assertions. Our intent is to cultivate a community of interest. Our hope is that a loose coalition will form through this blog, and through other channels, that will enrich the wisdom that evaluators and designers bring to their work. Please join us.
