In this chapter, we present a method for evaluating open digital innovation contests. The method serves several purposes: it helps to evaluate whether the organisers have achieved their goals of organising the contest or not, it supports managers in managing the contest operations and it supports learning within the organisations. The activity also supports knowledge transfer to other organisations and supports making contributions to the scientific knowledge base. The method description is followed by an example and a few guidelines.
