The key to planning your evaluation is to focus on one aspect of your organization that you want to measure, whether you focus on service delivery activities or the long-term impact you have in the lives of your clients.  A narrow focus on your subject matter will make the process manageable.   These guides, handbooks, and models will help you map out ideas, and narrow your focus.  As you review the measures evaluated by others, you may see a topic that resonates with your own interests.  These resources can help you determine your focus and timeline; you will also gather basic terminology useful to conduct your evaluation and present your results.
