Evaluation als Instrument zur systematischen und transparenten Bewertung von Projekten, Massnahmen, Programmen, Gesetzen und anderen Gegenständen hat in den letzten zwei Dekaden in Kontinentaleuropa stark an Bedeutung gewonnen. Evaluationstätigkeiten werden auf der Angebots- und Nachfrageseite professionalisiert. Die Gründung entsprechender Fachgesellschaften, die Schaffung spezifischer Aus- und Weiterbildungsangebote und die Etablierung fachlicher Standards belegen dies. Dieser Sammelband spiegelt Entwicklungsstand und Leistungsprofil der Evaluation in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz wider. Namhafte, mit der jeweiligen Landessituation vertraute Autorinnen und Autoren leisten Beiträge zu zehn Themenfeldern: Agrarpolitik, Arbeitsmarktpolitik, Bildung, Energie- und Umweltpolitik, Entwicklungszusammenarbeit, Forschung und Technologie, Gesundheit, institutionelle Politik, Raumentwicklungspolitik und Soziale Arbeit. Ländervergleichende Beiträge arbeiten Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede themenspezifisch heraus. Ergänzt werden diese vierzig Beiträge um Querschnittsbeiträge zur Institutionalisierung und zur Nutzung von Evaluation in den drei Ländern. "Expansion, Vielfalt und Divergenz der Evaluation" lautet die Quintessenz des übergreifenden Themenvergleichs im abschliessenden Beitrag.

This issue explores the many issues in understanding managing evaluation: an omnipresent, if often invisible process guiding evaluation studies, evaluators, other workers and evaluation units. Contributing chapters first define and then illuminate these matters through four case studies. The central questions in the domain of managing are: Should the evaluation field recognize managing as a core professional expertise? Should it promote this by legitimizing the preparation of experts and expertise? What should the curriculum, pedagogy, and learning sites be? The authors suggest beginning foci, curricula, and pedagogy in managing evaluation and hope to stimulate reflection and conversation within our profession on how best to manage evaluation in these various contexts and multiple layers. This is the 121st volume of the volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Evaluation, an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.
