Evaluators and their clients often have different backgrounds, tasks and training. At the same time, they interact as equal partners to jointly identify areas for problem solving, evaluation, and research. To date, evaluator–stakeholder communication is an understudied area in the field of evaluation, with very few studies examining evaluation practice with a communication lens. This presentation explores the nature of evaluator-stakeholder communication through selected interpersonal communication theories. In particular, the presenter will inform the practice of evaluation in terms of how evaluators interact and communicate with their stakeholders and set the stage for future research involving evaluators-stakeholders communication.
