“It is very clear that the authors have an extensive experience applying mixed research methodologies to a variety of interventions in multiple contexts. […T]he main strength in what I have read is that they are very successful in connecting these real-life experiences with the theories that they present in the text; this combination brings new life to the text and help readers to easily identify with the content.”
“This text is different than other books in the field because […] it covers material that is not commonly found in other program evaluation (PE) and performance measurement (PM) texts—especially to this level of detail. It may be more common for other PE and PM books to discuss culture-specific interventions or cultural competency in a part of one chapter, but not have it be the primary focus of the text.”
“I see a lot of value in the consilient approach to methodology the authors are encouraging. I think they have done a nice job selecting and defining important practical approaches.”
