Phase 3: Putting Evaluation Results to Work


  • To review initial plans on how to use evaluation results and act on lessons learned


  • To explore changes that an organisation can adopt from evaluation experiences and
  • To develop a communication strategy to share evaluation results

Step 7: Incorporating Learning into Work

One of the principles of the GEM approach to evaluation is the importance of using what have been learned. The main purpose in this phase therefore is to figure out how to act on the results garnered from the evaluation. The first step is to review the project or initiative’s intended uses.

If the evaluation is about learning that leads to change, then the lessons learned on gender and ICT issues should result in integrating gender or positive changes on gender in the project or initiative. These changes can happen in several ways:

Change in Evaluation Practice

Change in Gender Equality Practice

Change in ICT Practice
