Conducting Evaluations

Our evaluations provide compelling and actionable information on program impact, so organizations are better able to execute their initiatives and achieve their goals. We blend qualitative and quantitative methods to provide clients with convincing outcome data they need to maximize impacts from their programs and program support from funders, partners, and participants. The Brinkerhoff method has been developed and tested over more than two decades making it particularly practical, time-sensitive, and customer-oriented. That is, we employ scientific rigor to produce credible data while addressing the real-world needs and constraints of our clients.  

Our evaluations enable clients to persuasively tell the story of their program impact by arming them with answers to the following core questions:

  1. When the program works well, what is the best it achieved? Where and how often does it work? And for whom? What helps drive success?
  2. When the program does not work, what gets in the way?
  3. Who needs to do what differently to get more value from the program?
  •  “Skeptics question whether our program is working and stakeholders want to see the evidence. We need proof of our value.”

  •  “We know in our gut that our programs achieve meaningful results, but we need data to tell our story more convincingly.”

  •  “We want to offer a new program to a much larger audience, but before we go all the way, we need to know how the initial roll-out is working to make needed improvements and get more buy-in.”

  •  “Some of our people are performing quite well, but others continue to struggle. What are the good ones doing differently? How can we get more people to achieve these same positive results?”
