CALL FOR SPEAKERS

We are looking for people interested in presenting at next year’s PCE!

One of the key parts of the management cycle is evaluation.  We start with a vision, use it to help us strategise and set goals and targets, and then think about the standards we would like to achieve.  Then we implement our action steps, monitor and evaluate our progress and then take corrective action. But how best to evaluate? What does evaluation entail? What tools do you use? What makes it difficult to get right? What can go wrong, and what actions can be taken to avoid this? How much does successful evaluation depend on the other steps of the cycle? Do you have some techniques for evaluating certain things that you do that you could share with others?

We are looking for four people who will each deliver a 15-minute talk.  We do not pay speakers, but if selected you will receive travel costs (up to 100GBP), one night’s accommodation in Liverpool (also up to 100GBP), and of course admission to the PCE itself.

Submit your proposal by December 2nd, 2018

Please send a title and 100 word abstract to     lamsigpce2019@gmail.com

PCE, Monday 1st April, 2019, Liverpool

 

Looking backwards, moving forward – Effective evaluation & improvement

One of the key parts of the management cycle is evaluation.  We start with a vision, use it to help us strategise and set goals and targets, and then think about the standards we would like to achieve.  Then we evaluate our success and make changes somewhere in the process. But how best to evaluate?

This pre-conference event will look at this cycle, with a focus on evaluating what has been done, and using this evaluation in effective planning and implementation.  Would you like to take a step back, look at what you do in your job and how your team / department / school functions, and see if you could be doing it better? Then this day-long workshop is for you
