Having the right information available at the right time goes a long way toward helping organizations improve their program performance and meet their goals. Continuous improvement denotes a shift from thinking about evaluation as a one-time effort to assess the effectiveness of a completed program to treating evaluation as a continuous learning process that provides programs data to show whether and how they are delivering value to their community over time.
