Program Evaluation

People often worry that program evaluation is a judgemental audit of organizational and individual performance. If evaluators impose check-lists or unattainable metrics of success, outcomes can be unsatisfying because those involved don't feel heard or celebrated. When funding for important services or initiatives are at stake, there can be a lot riding on evaluations.


We get it! That's why our evaluation practice centres on: 

We honour what growth means to you.


Set and reach your own performance, program, and/or organizational goals 

That's it. No judgement. No check-lists. No unnecessary performance indicators. And, absolutely no reports that gather dust on shelves.

We listen to what you want and use every aspect of the evaluation to  bring you closer to your vision.

AND, we bring energizing strategies to build enthusiasm for evaluation without draining your team. Learn more about how we avoid exhausting clients here
