Evaluation

Together we can capture and share the impact of your work.

Rigour and evidence-based decision making is central to our work and we bring a reflective and curious mindset to each project we undertake. We have designed evaluation tools and frameworks for projects at a local, provincial and national scale. This includes conducting multi-year developmental evaluations for Social Innovation Labs and summative and formative evaluation of programs, initiatives and events. 

 

We use a multi-level approach to help you:

  • Zoom out to understand broader systems and capture your work’s impact 

  • Zoom in to understand what’s working, what’s not, and how we can learn and adapt

  • Zoom forward to accelerate your work and move through your theory of change.

Working with Annelies has been an extremely valuable process. Annelies encourages us to ask the difficult questions, and then to sit in our silence until we answer them in a meaningful way. Annelies has been able to draw out reflections about our work that most likely wouldn't have come up without her.
