Monitoring and Evaluation

Measurement is an essential part of any organization’s drive to achieve palpable impacts from the programs they run. Hence, we help governments, companies, and international organizations to assess the results of their programs across a wide spectrum of areas and to detect the challenges they face in their operations in order to grasp opportunities for improvement.

    Impact Evaluation and Assessment

We conduct Program Monitoring to learn from experience, to increase internal and external accountability of performance, to make informed decisions, and to maximize project performance.

This serves as a means of checking how the action plan’s implementation is progressing. Program Evaluation looks at the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of the given intervention.

Our methods include quantitative and qualitative analysis, randomized pre- and post-test evaluation, experimental and quasi-experimental design, ex-post comparison, and rapid assessment ex-post impact evaluations. Services range from small-scale rapid assessment and participatory appraisals to large-scale sample surveys.

Meanwhile, Data Quality Review is a key element of any smoothly functioning monitoring and evaluation system. Indeed, monitoring and evaluation data represent an important source of information to ascertain the extent of progress being made and also providing support to project managers in their decision making. Ensuring that data are of a high quality is essential to maintain confidence in decisions made.

Our data quality tools and mechanisms review data from the point of view of validity, reliability, timeliness, precision, and integrity. Using Impact Evaluation, we identify what is positively and/or negatively infl­uencing target groups, individual households, institutions, and the overall environment. This allows us to better understand the extent to which program goals have been achieved and what impacts these have had on the target groups and stakeholders in particular.

Join Our Team

We are a team of highly skilled professionals committed to delivering progress.

Our monitoring and evaluation is oriented toward impact measuring and serves as a guide for project implementation and management, providing stakeholders with information on the progress being made toward the achievement of objectives, as well as highlighting any disparities between targets and actual achievements. This valuable method identifies where a program is heading, how it will get there, and whether its resources are being used in the most cost-effective manner.
