Evaluation Standards and Criteria for Technology Implementation

ADVERTISEMENTS:

As with other factors in life, evaluations come in many levels of sophistication and expenditures.

As noted earlier, planning teams need to consider where they can make the best uses of limited resources.

However, decisions to lower evaluation standards need to be made deliberately and with knowledge of possible consequences.
