The Little Book of Creative Evaluation is for organisations, teams and individuals who wish to learn more about how Creative Evaluation can support their evaluation needs and goals. Creative Evaluation is not one clear pathway to evaluating. It is instead a constellation of approaches that employ creative methods, tools and thinking aimed at producing evaluations that foster collaboration, mutual learning, inclusivity and engagement. Learning from and responding to the specific context within which an evaluation is situated, along with being open and flexible in how participants can contribute to the evaluation design and practice, are key elements of Creative Evaluation.

The Little Book of Creative Evaluation presents a summary of Creative Evaluation, the principles that it promotes, their benefits, and some real-world evaluation examples that engage with Creative Evaluation practice. This book has also a resources section where readers can get more information on how to approach and conduct evaluations using Creative Evaluation approaches, methods and tools.
