La valutazione della formazione continua: un’analisi dei fabbisogni degli stakeholder - Over the past few years literature on program evaluation has been studying multistakeholder evaluation, but training evaluation models and practices still do not seem aware of this problem. The present study identifies intersections between methodologies and approaches of participatory evaluation and typical techniques and evaluation tools used for training. This study focuses on understanding the evaluation needs of the stakeholders classes typically involved in a training program. A training program financed by the European Social Fund in Italy has been studied, both with qualitative and quantitative methodologies. The results suggest that different stakeholders classes have different evaluation needs and, in operative terms, highlight the convergence and divergence between stakeholders’ evaluation needs. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
Keywords: Training and development evaluation - stakeholder - stakeholder based evaluation.
