Nuts and Bolts of Measuring Outcomes

What is the difference between measurement and evaluation? Why do we need consultants to evaluate our programs? What sort of measurement or evaluation do we do ourselves, and when do we need external assistance?  In our current changing procurement environment of understanding and measuring outcomes, it can be very unclear as to what we are referring to when we discuss measurement and evaluation. It becomes even more confusing when we see the myriad of tools, frameworks, theories and definitions in measuring social outcomes.
