This paper, co-authored by Dr Jess Dart, discusses the evaluation of the national Lifetimewool project. The objective of this project was to develop practical grazing management guidelines that would enable wool growers throughout Australia to increase lifetime production of wool per hectare from ewes. The paper focuses specifically on the evaluation work that was conducted on the project between 2003 and 2008. The Lifetimewool project used ‘people-centred evaluation’ to help guide the creation of an internal evaluation plan. The six core principles followed were: participation; program logic, a people-centred focus; multiple lines of evidence; reflection and learning and a clearly documented and resourced evaluation plan.
