We help organizations across three core areas:
Evaluation, policy and procurement, and data and technology.
These needs lend themselves to a shared services format and interdisciplinary teams, allowing us to deliver cost-effective and relevant solutions that connect to an organization’s strategy.
Strategic Evidence Plans (SEPs)
At the heart of our partnerships are the co-creation of Strategic Evidence Plans or SEPs—multi-year roadmaps to accelerate our partners’ investments and activities for continuous evidence generation and program improvement, grounded in their operational reality and learning agenda.
We help our partners find outsourced or shared expert talent in data science, analysis, implementation, policy, and evaluation. We also offer Talent Accelerators that provide virtual, cohort-based professional development and peer-to-peer learning.
Technical Assistance (TA)
We offer “a menu” of technical assistance (TA) offerings related to evaluation, technology and data, and outcome-based policy and procurement that allow organizations to engage in activities appropriate for their existing capacity and immediate need.
We offer additional services and support for funders who are looking to develop their own evidence-building capabilities across investing and grantmaking, portfolio management, evaluation, and pay-for-performance.
Learn about how we’ve partnered with other organizations on their evidence-building journeys.
We produce case studies of our engagements that we believe can help others learn about the various challenges and opportunities for specific evidence-building activities. Our intention for sharing insights and lessons learned is to help accelerate the development and adoption of best practices for the sector.
You can find all of our case studies here.
Conferences and Events
We participate in key conferences, funder collaboratives, and events that we believe have the potential to shape the conversation around evidence building and strengthen communities of practice.
See where we’ve been and where we’ll be next here.
We are currently piloting a number of online solutions that will provide access to shared tools and resources that help accelerate learning and foster the development of peer-to-peer communities. Watch this space!
Leveraging our wide networks and communities, we convene leaders and funders across sectors to share learning and advance the field.
