Date completedFebruary 2002
This paper, by Eric Oldsman and Kris Hallberg, presents a framework for evaluating the impact of donor-funded initiatives designed to promote small enterprise development. It shows how to use program logic models to structure the chain of causality between program inputs, outputs and outcomes. Issues relevant to all evaluations - attribution, the scope of the evaluation, the choice of indicators and evealuation methodologies, and tradeoffs in evaluation design - are discussed in the context of small enterprise programs. Focusing on interventions to develop markets for business development services, the paper shows how to apply these principles in practice, illustrating different approaches with examples drawn from the literature and previous evaluations of donor-funded programs.
