The universe is a funny place, ain’t it? 🔮💫💥😱 Last year, I met Michael Quinn Patton in one of his Developmental Evaluation workshops. After learning about #liberatingstructures , he invited me to write a piece for his latest book, Facilitating Evaluation, despite not knowing whether or not I can write a solid sentence (still up for debate). Well, the little beauty just arrived! The book is fabulous and many voices in eval are featured—I really recommend, as much as I struggle to read my own writing 📝😱. If you haven’t, check out Patton’s books on Developmental Evaluation and Principles Focused Eval, both essential reading for those of us working with complexity. Lots of💥💫💗to @keithmccandless2 for his supportive 👀 on the piece.
