ANZSOG has assembled a team of experts in evaluation to help public sector and not-for-profit organisations strengthen their capacity in evidence and evaluation.
As Project Director of BetterEvaluation.org, and Professor of Public Sector Evaluation, Patricia teaches elements of ANZSOG courses, works on complex evaluations, provides advice and conducts research.
She is an experienced evaluator who has worked on evaluations and evaluation systems for nearly 30 years with national, state and local government departments and agencies in Australia and New Zealand, UN agencies, international philanthropic foundations, development banks and not-for-profits in a range of sectors including education, health, early childhood, community services, international development, science and technology, employment, energy, and infrastructure.
Patricia’s work is driven by both the promise of the benefits of good evaluation and the risks of bad evaluation.
George is the editor of Evidence Base Journal and a Senior Lecturer in Evidence-based Policymaking. As well as teaching, he consults on a wide range of research and evaluation projects for private and public sector agencies, including as an expert advisor to the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet for the development of the Whole of Government Evaluation Framework.
Working in complex policy areas like disaster recovery, which demand a multi agency approach across levels of government and over a period of time, is of particular interest to George.
