Identifying, selecting and developing the right people to take leadership roles in your organization can be the difference between success and failure.

Critical for driving quality, service, and revenue, your managers have the greatest impact on customers and the most frequent interaction with the majority of employees. Effective managers are essential for implementing business strategies, driving revenue, and promoting employee retention.  McKinsey Quarterly recently noted that “…senior executives overlook the “softer” skills their leaders will need to pass changes throughout the organization and make them stick.” Without a strong, emotionally intelligent leader, personal and professional failure is much more likely to occur than is accomplishment.

Independent program evaluation is a valuable tool for program managers who are seeking to improve outcomes for the people they serve. 

Program evaluation answers basic questions about a program’s effectiveness, and evaluation data can be used to improve program services. Program evaluation is a systematic method for collecting, analyzing, and using information to answer basic questions about a program. While there are many different types of program evaluations, and many terms are used to describe them, evaluations are typically divided into two major categories: process evaluations and outcome evaluations.

Process evaluations assess whether an intervention or program model was implemented as planned, whether the intended target population was reached, and the major challenges and successful strategies associated with program implementation.

Outcome evaluations determine whether, and to what extent, the expected changes in outcomes occur and whether these changes can be attributed to the program or program activities.

Please let us know if you would like further information or want us to submit a proposal for your evaluation.
