Abstract english

When discussing choice of methodology in evaluation studies, it is wise to reflect upon

organizational considerations concerning contracting, conducting and utilization.

Based upon research conducted among social workers in Sweden this paper focuses upon

possibilities and problems in knowledge dissemination and usage. Powerful institutions in

Sweden are now encouraging knowledge development of social services. The goal presented

being to modernize social service organizations through the use of evaluations as a working

concept. The premise being then that intervention should be based upon how services are

valued by clients. Although the case is from Sweden it is argued that the topic crosses

international boundaries.

The paper stresses a multi-theoretical framework in order to understand this process. Such a

framework is applied.
