Research and Evaluation


You may recall the old adage, “if you do not measure it, it will not be done” or another:  “if it’s done, how do we know it’s successful?”  Evaluation and research play a key role in measuring results and impacts based on goals, objectives and/or hypotheses. Without a systematic scientific approach, our measure may appear as a personal opinion and carry little weight. Reliable evaluation requires a systematic, rigorous, and meticulous application of scientific methods to assess the design, implementation, improvement or outcomes of a subject requiring deeper understanding and specific measurement. 


Research and evaluation can help you demonstrate the value of what you do, decide what to continue and what to change and determine future pathways for growth.
