Model 6: data, information, knowledge, wisdom
The Liebowitz (1999) model of DIKW is helpful if you are looking for something with details to give you ideas on what you might do in your own work. I can see how this can be used to evaluate large scale programs. The value aspects are useful reminders of the underlying purpose in moving to each stage, and therefore gives an idea of what might need to be planned for in a large scale program to achieve each step.
