Associate Professor John Owen
Associate Professor John Owen, a former Director of the Centre for Program Evaluation, is interested in the application of various models and approaches to evaluation and the design of protocols that enable these models to be used effectively in organisations. He has a particular interest in the use of evaluation for accountability purposes.
Another feature of John's recent studies has been to work with organisational leadership and management to improve the delivery of innovative programs, using the principle of sustained interactivity. This principle assumes that ongoing cooperation between evaluators and managers increases the use of funded knowledge in decision-making.
