Flexible and responsive evaluation consulting services
Our skilled evaluation consultants have substantial experience of evaluating programs, projects, services, campaigns, and other interventions and initiatives. We have completed evaluations for numerous non-profit organizations and public agencies. Our evaluations have included large, complex evaluations spanning several years and small evaluations with a tight turnaround. We adapt our approach to meet your individual requirements and budget.
We are skilled in mixed methods evaluation and draw upon a wide range of methods to collect, analyze and interpret data, to achieve insight into program implementation and impact. Our evaluation consultants are experienced in participatory, empowerment, action research and utilization-focused evaluation approaches.
An outcome evaluation is concerned with the effect the initiative (or program) has on participants. It can help answer questions such as: What impact is the program having on those taking part? What works? For whom? How? Are the program objectives being met? Did the program have any unintended effects on participants?
A process / implementation evaluation will help you know whether the program has been implemented as intended. It will ask questions such as: How is the program being implemented? Does it operate as planned and expected? Who is participating in the program? Who is not? What are the barriers and facilitators to implementation?
In developmental evaluation the evaluator works in partnership with your program management team and provides real-time feedback from ongoing collection and analysis of data allowing you to make changes as the program evolves. DE is used to support innovation development such as new projects or programs or organizational change.
