Developmental evaluation supports adaptation and learning in initiatives involving high levels of uncertainty, innovation, and complexity. Combining the rigour of evaluation with the flexibility and imagination required for development, this new approach to evaluation brings critical thinking to bear on developing new social innovations, scaling opportunities, or adapting models to local contexts.
In 2008, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation published Jamie Gamble's primer on developmental evaluation.
