Six steps to successful program evaluation
Effectively use data in your decision-making process
Our unique Six Step Evaluation Process is designed to highlight the relationship between your strategies, activities and their impacts.
Know what to measure
It all starts here – understanding the ‘why’ behind your evaluation. To gain meaningful evidence, it’s important to know your outcomes – what change are you trying to create? An evaluation framework sets the foundation to consistently measure your impact by identifying your outcomes against their corresponding strategic goals.View our Solutions
