Background: The Leadership Institute (LI) was established at Royal Columbian Hospital in order to bring together formal leadership to engage in leadership development activities and transformative culture work. The importance of evaluating the LI in order to understand the strengths, limitations, and outcomes of the program was identified. Methods: A literature review was conducted. Consultations with key stakeholders were held. A document review was completed. The results of these activities were used to create a program theory, evaluation plan, and evaluation charter for the LI. Results: The program theory, along with Kirkpatrick’s (1979) evaluation framework, was used to develop an evaluation plan that assesses reaction, learning, behaviour, and results of the LI. The recommended measures are: 1) an evaluation questionnaire to assess the reaction, learning, and behaviour of participants, and identify the strengths and limitations of the LI, 2) the use of the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) tool to assess the learning and behaviour of participants that links to the LEADS Capabilities Framework, and 3) a project report form to identify results that demonstrate the effectiveness of LI project work. Conclusions: A comprehensive evaluation plan is ready for implementation. The results the evaluation can be used to support the effectiveness of the LI, plan for future activities, and maintain ongoing stakeholder support for the program.
