360 Degree Appraisal

Time: low / Cost: low

360 Degree Appraisal collects views on a given question from multiple perspectives, by asking for feedback from a small number of individuals who are representative of a wider group of stakeholders. This could include staff, managers, members of the community or otherwise.

Change Record Template

Time: low / Cost: low

Change Records, as the name suggests, record the changes which are made to a project (and the difference they make) as the project goes along.

A free Change Record Template is provided by Evaluation Support Scotland.

 

Community Navigators

Time: moderate / Cost: moderate

Community Navigators come out of their communities and act as community researchers, working with the public (or any group of stakeholders) to find out their views on a given question.
