Outcomes need to be met in order for your project, your business, your organization to be successful.
You know that evaluation is an important component of your success, but ensuring that you are delivering on your promises is a continuing challenge.

Our evaluation system diagnostic will identify places where your current evaluation methods can be improved and provide solutions to remedy shortfalls. More participatory modes of evaluation also provide rich data that can help you serve your target groups better.
We provide training in a variety of participatory evaluation techniques, including our unique method of participatory evaluation using photography and video. These methods provide unmatched insight into your target groups and the impact of your programs. Participatory evaluation using visual media not only garners valuable information about your project performance and its components but you will be left with a unique documentation of your progress for use in future evaluations, public relations or advertising.
