5.1 Definition of Professionalization

The first ingredient is a clear definition of what professionalization means for your VOPE. Professionalization is defined differently by different people. The first step of discussing professionalising is to consider how your VOPE will define that term. At IOCE, we define professionalization as a collective set of actions aiming to equip evaluators with strong values, knowledge and skills in evaluation that supports the likelihood of quality and useful evaluations. A secondary conversation is whether your VOPE wishes to use the term “professionalization.” For example, in South Africa, the South African M&E Association (SAMEA) refers to “strengthening”, not “professionalizing” evaluators and evaluation.
