The Evaluation into Action Method

We Start with Design

Before we even begin implementation, we make sure we can answer key questions about the evaluation needs of the organization. “What?”, “Why?”, and “How.”

  • Discovery

    Identify program elements and how they relate to evaluation.

  • Plan

    Define program goals, activities, measurable outcomes and methodology to evaluate.

Then We Implement the Realistic Plan

We’ll assess your organization’s unique needs and capacities, setting you up for success in collecting, managing, analyzing, and reporting key findings and insights.

  • Collect

    Create tools to gather data and establish project management process.

  • Manage

    Establish a realistic system to store data.

  • Analyze

    Examine patterns and meaning.

  • Report

    Synthesize into user-friendly document.

To Use Actionable Findings

We demystify the program evaluation process to generate findings you can use to share and improve your programs.

  • Communicate

    Determine how results will be communicated to stakeholder groups.

  • Improve Programs

    Apply data-based decision-making to strengthen programs.

  • Support Development

    Identify data needed to support fundraising efforts.

Program evaluation does not end with the report.

Utilization, or making practical and effective use of the information, is the most important piece of the process.

No matter what your data show you, they will empower you to make better decisions and lead your organization forward in the right direction.

I would highly recommend working with Chari!

Chari worked intensively with the Resident Services program at Northwest Housing Alternatives to develop measurable outcomes which demonstrate the impact of our work. The Resident Services program has a very wide scope and Chari worked very hard to ensure that the whole team had the opportunity to provide feedback and input every step of the way, creating buy-in and ensuring a smooth transition to our new data tracking and measurement systems. Her enthusiasm and excitement helped make the process fun, too. I would highly recommend working with Chari!
