We provide you with EFFECTIVE EVALUATION AND RESEARCH services.
Too many times, the research and evaluation reports that are generated for clients are essentially unusable. We work differently. We work with you to co-identify the questions that, when explored, will provide answers that will inform you about how and why your program is effective. We then design sophisticated evaluation plans that help you answer those questions. And importantly, we present findings in ways that are immediately accessible and digestible, using multimedia, social media, and any other venue that is appropriate for your audience. Of course, this is only useful if you are also able to disseminate those products. So we also help you develop and implement a strategic communications plan to ensure that the results of this work end up in your audience’s hands.
Let us help you uncover and broadcast your impact
We highly recommend that you begin monitoring activities at program inception and continue these data collection activities throughout program evolution. But we know that this isn't always feasible and can be daunting, so we don't attempt to apply a one-size-fits-all approach. We can help you think through program evaluation at the moment of program creation and walk with you as the program evolves, or come in at the tail-end and help you identify ways to correct course or assess impact.
