External Evaluators - Link to Germuth blog

Amy Germuth's blog very recently served up a think piece on the benefits of using an external evaluator (see Germuth's entry of July 16, 2010). It would be fun to ask Dr. Germuth about the downsides of hiring someone external even though she is an evaluation consultant and thus very likely in that role much of the time. Her blog is insightful—I especially like the mention of identifying unintended outcomes.

Germuth's blog, Evalthoughts, goes back several years. The archives make for good leisure reading for an evaluator.
