Simon (1976) argues that public management takes place in a bounded-rationality context, in which time, resources, information and knowledge are always limited resources available for policy decision making. In such context, Executive Evaluation or ‘quick evaluation’ is an efficient mechanism to support decision-making-in-ongoing-processes in an enlightened way; particularly when the goal is to account for the accomplished results (if any), and provide information for ‘real-time’ program improvement. This article describes an approach to Executive Evaluation. Methodologically it appeals to knowledge held by relevant local actors, as well as the use of simple, adaptive and relevant instruments. It considers the specificity of information needed by decision
makers, so that they can have a precise assessment of policy or program performance.
