Real-time evaluation methodology
The real-time evaluation methodology has distinguished and assessed the value flows delivered by the program as perceived by its stakeholders. It has done so not in a post-mortem fashion (i.e., after the end of the program) but in real-time fashion (i.e., during the program), with the aim of capturing strengths and weaknesses and contributing to its further development.
The real-time evaluation methodology makes use of appropriate combinations of various research tools in order to gather the data and information necessary to generate the knowledge at both program and case-study levels. This research tools combine review of secondary literature and archival data, survey questionnaire, semi-structured interview guides, and elements of participant observation through event attendance.
