Our Methods

Our unique approach increases organizations’ effectiveness by equipping them with the information, skills, and tools they need to drive improvement and share their story with the broader community.

  • Evaluation Strategy & Design. Organizations are often searching for more meaningful measures of impact so they can strategically prioritize their actions. During this phase, we work with organizations to create a logic model or theory of action and develop comprehensive metrics – and systems – to track their progress.
  • Data Collection & Analysis. With limited capacity, it can be challenging for organizations to create a realistic and actionable plan for data collection and analysis. During this phase, we either build internal capacity for data management or serve as an independent evaluator to assess organizational impact.
  • Implementation Planning & Communication. Too often, evaluation reports are not used to inform practice. During this phase, we help organizations use evaluation data to inform implementation planning and strategic communication to diverse stakeholders.
