Concept Mapping for Planning and Evaluation is a thorough, accessible guide to concept mapping for social or organizational researchers in any context. The volume describes the history of structured conceptualization-a most useful form of concept mapping. It also highlights the advantages that group or community concept mapping has over other kinds of group decision processes. With straightforward language and useful examples from the authors' 40 combined years of creating and working with this process, the book describes in detail the six major steps in the conduct of group concept mapping, and shares both the process of concept mapping and the equally important facilitation and guidance techniques that the authors have developed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mary Kane and Bill Trochim are the public face of "concept mapping" for most us who do planning and evaluation in public health. This volume is an enormously helpful and comprehensive look at concept mapping not only for those unfamiliar with the concept, but for those, like me, who have experienced the approach as a consumer, but have interest in the intricacies of the "hows" and "added value" of concept mapping over other approaches. Best of all, they do an exceptional job of using concept mapping to integrate planning and evaluation, linking the hermetically sealed boxes in which these disciplines often live in large organizations. -- Thomas Chapel
"At last, an up-to-date, how-to-text on concept mapping in evaluation!...Mary Kane and William Trochim, instrumental in the development and promotion of concept mapping, have finally produced such book, which will enable experienced evaluators and program planners to add concept mapping to their suite of methods." -- Rick Cummings
