Evaluation of the Flemish Entrepreneurship Action Plan
The evaluation of the action plan primarily aimed to assess whether and to what extent the action plan has responded to the (policy)objectives in a broad sense. This includes both the reasons for the creation of the action plan as well as the objectives that relate to the implementation of all activities included in the action plan. In addition, we positioned the action plan in the broader policy context (from 2008 to present) as well as compared to other (action)plans related to entrepreneurship (in the broad sense). Furthermore, also the workfield was analyzed on the basis of an overview of the various organisations which are active in the framework of the action plan. This inventory allowed analysing to what extent the action plan achieved its objectives. The implementation of the action plan was examined as well through an analysis of the need to apply a specific target group approach in order to promote of entrepreneurship. Analogously, we also studied the choice of instruments and in particular the use of a "call"-system in the context of the Flemish entrepreneurship-policy and possible alternatives. This way, the evaluation ultimately contributed to a proposal on how the action plan in the future may evolve or should be adjusted.
