Evaluation is a tool that helps organisations understand both what the impact of their work has been and how this has been brought about.
Evaluation is much more than a mechanism for reporting progress to funders; it's a valuable management tool to help organisations understand more about how they work and the impact they have on people and places.
When we design and deliver evaluation projects we want it to be an activity that adds value to the organisation and its work. We design the process alongside clients to ensure the findings are owned and used. Often we are feeding in learning as the project or programme develops, providing an ongoing review and management tool. We design and deliver robust and independent evaluation processes but aim to work in a way that engages people in the value of the process and in developing a learning culture.
