Impact Measurement

We help clients increase the effectiveness of international development program delivery and maximize outcomes for program constituents. We view monitoring and evaluation (M&E) as inextricably linked to learning. We offer both qualitative and quantitative studies. We favor the use of digital and mobile tools, where appropriate, to aid M&E and provide a framework for data gathering and analysis.

Sample deliverables:

  • Evaluation and Learning Plan Development: We work with a wide variety of clients—from multilateral donors to social enterprises—on all aspects of evaluation and learning plans, including articulating a theory of change, developing a results framework and indicators, and creating an approach and system for performance monitoring. Some clients use this work to seek funding from investors; others to meet reporting requirements; and others to engage in reflective learning that feeds back to program design and implementation. Recent projects include working through DAI to help United States Agency for International Development’s Global Development Lab to develop evaluation and learning plans and building M&E capacity at Fundación Banigualidad, a microcredit and training foundation in Chile.
  • Program Evaluation: From midterm or end-of-project evaluations to ongoing monitoring and constituent feedback collection, we work with clients on all aspects of program evaluation. We favor a collaborative approach and pay special attention to determining how individuals, teams, and organizations can apply evaluation findings to achieve greater impact. Past projects include the design of an investigative study on teacher uptake of training for the All Children Reading Grand Challenge, and the midterm evaluation of MEASURE Evaluation.
