Questions 1 & 2

This page addresses questions one and two from the Asking Good Questions framework.
Questions 1 and 2 are about understanding context, and designing a high-quality ‘offer’ that responds to this context. These questions are really important in laying the foundation for both delivery and evaluation. It’s very hard to evaluate your work without answering these two questions really well.

In other words – we have to clearly describe what we’re seeking to do, how and why we’re doing it in that way, if we want to be able to understand the quality of our work, whether it’s making a difference, and why.
