Learning is often the goal of evaluation. Ironically, we may learn more from failure than from success. In fact, program design strives to “fail early and often” as new ideas are iteratively prototyped, evaluated, and refined. In this presentation, we will examine societal expectations about program failure and consider the most common ways that programs fail. I will suggest that “strategic failure” is the key to learning, and I will outline how it can be achieved by integrating program evaluation and program design.
