1 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] Bonn, 19 March 2007 Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication Management. The Uses and Abuses of Evaluation

2 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 2 Evaluation of Communication is importantbecause it is the only way to control if you are reaching your goals and have used your resources effectively; costs moneyso that you have to make sure that the costs and benefits are in the right relationship; is complexbecause the communications processes themselves are extremely complex.

3 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 3 Listening, Understanding, Accepting Listening is the first of three hurdles that a message has to overcome. Understanding is following the line of argument and forming an attitude. Understanding can lead to Acceptance. If you are accepted you will be extended long-term trust, you will be believed and you will also be able to generate active support for your objectives. If the addressees are convinced, they might act in the way you hoped and anticipated.

5 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 5 Evaluation and Transparency Evaluation causes transparency Transparency through evaluation is the basis for the legitimisation of communications work, Transparency is necessary internally and externally.

6 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 6 Three types of Evaluation Process evaluation - Investigates whether the right people do the right things at the right time. Processes should be evaluated in an on-going fashion. Are we doing the right things? Efficiency analysis - This focuses on the relationship between the effectiveness and the resources used. Are we doing the things right? Analysis of the effects and the effectiveness – How can I measure what effects of my measures are?

7 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 7 Effects and effectiveness The effects are described changes in cognitive, emotional and behavioural fields. Effects in communications are all the resultant changes, intended or not. I need a benchmark t evaluate my measure Effectiveness is the extent to which a measure had achieved thr objectives.

8 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 8 Abuse Checklists do not guarantee that communication measures will be more effective. instruments like the balanced scorecard gain in popularity, there is an increasing tendency to employ them incorrectly. The result is a return to simple communications measures because they are known and measurable. The apparent objectivity of numbers and percentages draws people to making rushed interpretations. The obsessive collection of figures can quickly become extremely expensive.

9 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 9 Use Favourite evaluation instruments. Monitoring media resonance. Quantitative analysis Qualitative analysis Evaluation of topics Evaluation as monitoring system Checking messages Checking Output /Outgrowth level Evaluation of agenda-setting Evaluation of framing Analysis of Image

10 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 10 Output: Message in TV, Newspaper etc. Outgrowth: understand, plausible, retain facts in memory Outcome: Images Contact Direct Impact Indirect effect low high Input modification/validation of PR-strategy/PR-tactics

11 [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ Effective Evaluation for Complex Communication 11 Effective evaluation of communication Five steps 1. Set up an evaluation plan right at the start, try to identify the neuralgic points of the communications strategy. 2. Set goals and agree on the performance parameters. Then will you be able to carry out on-going checks. 3. Make use throughout of small efficient instruments. Evaluate them so that you can introduce improvements during an on-going process. 4. You need to know about your reference groups. Keep checking whether this knowledge is adequate and correct. 5. Communications management is also Management of uncertainty. Strategic communication involves not only state-of-the-art methodology but also common sense and gut feelings.
