Evaluation Design and Execution

Customizing and implementing studies that meet client needs for rigorous evaluation

Effective policy and practice require rigorous and independent evaluation to determine what works.Drawing on varied perspectives and extensive field experience, our research teams bring together subject matter and methodological experts to work closely with clients to design and execute evaluations to identify effects, outcomes, and impacts.

Our teams have successfully managed thousands of evaluations for government, foundation, and commercial clients worldwide, including randomized controlled trials of specific programs and interventions, multisite quasi-experimental evaluations, and evaluations of national initiatives and marketing campaigns. We are adept at collecting and managing primary data—including surveys, interviews, and focus groups—acquiring and processing secondary data, applying state-of-the-art qualitative and quantitative analytic techniques, and sharing results in a way that maximizes learning and progress.
