A summary guide to all the resources on the site relating to
Learning Organisations.

If you're trying to get to grips with evaluation, often
it's difficult to find clear information on the subject,
and even more difficult to find others to share your
experiences with. EvaluationZone sets out to change all
that, by guiding you through a series of defined topics you
can dip in and out of at any time, together with discussion
forums and workshops so you can chart your progress with
others. Look out for a special dedicated wire coming
shortly for more information, or see
