We’re passionate to help you grasp the real effects of your social interventions. Together, we can design a robust and useful evaluation process to learn from your past performance, while catering towards your accountability and reporting requirements.
We recognise that most international development efforts pursue complex change. This type of change is often intangible, non-linear, and difficult to predict in pace and scale.
We need to understand the expectedunexpected changes, which can go beyond your own deliverables. What is the significance of your intervention? How plausibly can change be attributed to your efforts?
Together we pick from our toolkit of tested methodologies, which we tailor to your specific needs. This can include Contribution Analysis, Realist Evaluation, Process Tracing or Collaborative Outcome Reporting.
We mobilise additional quantitative expertise when appropriate.
For true learning, we go even further: we deliberately pursue the acceptance and internalisation of evaluation results through joint sense-making.
We then work with you to translate the evaluation findings into actionable measures that will empower you towards even greater social impact.
