Title: Making team science better: applying improvement-oriented evaluation principles to evaluation of cooperative research centers
Description: A book chapter arguing that although recent CRC evaluation efforts have gone a long way toward meeting the needs of groups interested in accountability, they do little to meet the needs of inexperienced scientist managers who try to lead and manage these organizationally complex initiatives. An exception to this trend is described: the improvement-oriented evaluation strategy pioneered by the National Science Foundation IUCRC program.
