MCF invites you to a one-hour overview webinar about Ripple Effects Mapping led by Scott Chazdon, an evaluation consultant and retired evaluation specialist at University of Minnesota Extension. 

Ripple Effects Mapping (REM) is a qualitative evaluation approach that relies on interactive group interviewing and reflection. REM engages program and community stakeholders to retrospectively and visually map the chain of effects resulting from a program or complex collaboration. It employs elements of Appreciative Inquiry, mind mapping, and qualitative data analysis. REM is particularly useful for complex initiatives because it provides an opportunity to engage key stakeholders in the evaluation process and typically re-energizes participants and stakeholders to continue their community development, organizing, or systems change work.
