Stevenson Center, Mikva Challenge’s Election in Action


Organizations are continually evolving to meet changing demands and expectations on their resources, personnel and programs. In order to continue to be successful, an organization must analyze itself to understand what changes are required and why an organization should make them. This analysis often involves both a shortterm and long-term evaluation to great a more complete understanding of an organization, before any changes are implemented. However, organizations often do not have an evaluation plan with which to judge long-term effectiveness of its programs, preferring to concentrate on short-term, cyclical evaluation processes. As a result, in this paper, a detailed foundation for a long-term evaluation framework is provided to help increase Mikva Challenge’s Election in Action (EIA) program’s long-term viability, effectiveness and efficiency.
