Evaluations are the cornerstone of our business. Our experience spans the spectrum, from experimental and quasi-experimental to non-experimental, offering a clear assessment of the effectiveness and economic – as well as wider – impact of policies and programmes of all scales and budgets.
Public-sector clients benefit from our high level of methodological expertise, combined with a deep understanding of the policy area and knowledge of the key role played by effective evaluation in policy making.
Our evaluation work includes the following types of evaluative practice:
- longitudinal impact
- cost-benefit analysis and value-for money-assessments
Our evaluations are underpinned by the theory of change – how you expect an intervention to work and achieve impact. By presenting it as a logic chain, we can test key assumptions. Working in close collaboration with you, we make sure you have clear evidence of the difference your investment has made.
When you work with us, we’ll create a bespoke approach for your evaluation, developing unique tools, models and frameworks to meet your requirements and deliver trustworthy results. And when it comes to data collection, we think creatively and use the latest technology to engage even the hardest-to-reach audiences. Where viable, we devise and design comparison groups, including counterfactuals.
