BEI's Core Services

Conducting evaluations. BEI partners with organizations to provide program impact evaluations that enable them to address their most pressing issues more effectively. Our studies use best practices to deliver justifiable conclusions and actionable recommendations.

Training and capability building.
 BEI provides workshops and capacity building services to build capability in evaluation skills, tools, and practices. BEI also offers speaking and keynote services at conferences and meetings. 

Impact mapping. 
BEI helps organizations "see the hidden wiring" of how their initiatives work by clarifying intended outcomes and showing linkages among program goals, critical behaviors, and a range of job or work team contributions. This helps people get on the same page about who needs to do what to achieve success, and it illuminates program merit and the mechanisms to achieve value-added for organizations.
