  • Outcome Evaluation

    Outcome evaluation assesses the effects of a program on the targeted population by determining progress toward meeting outcome objectives. Impact or outcome evaluations are used when stakeholders need to know the extent to which program objectives were met.

  • Needs Assessment

    Needs assessments involve the systematic use of scientific methods to identify the gap between what is and what should be. They are used to determine how best to allocate resources and lead to action that improves organizational efforts.

  • Survey Research

    Surveys are used to collect meaningful information about participants and to assess change on targeted outcomes. We follow a systematic and scientifically-based process for developing surveys to help ensure that findings can be trusted. Data analytic methods are used to gain deep insights into respondents’ knowledge, attitudes, and behavior.

  • Customer & Employee Satisfaction

    Customer and employee satisfaction are assessed using survey research methods. The satisfaction of the individuals you serve is a key performance indicator and impacts their loyalty to your organization and can positively influence targeted outcomes. Greater employee engagement and satisfaction are associated with less turnover, lower absenteeism, and better performance.

  • Focus Groups & Interviews

    Through focus groups and interviews we collect in-depth information about specific aspects of projects that are of interest. These qualitative techniques can be used to obtain insight into the experiences of participants or to understand how programs can best achieve their goals.

  • Data Visualization

    Data visualization is the presentation of data or data analysis results in a pictorial or graphical format. Statistical results related to your organization’s efforts are made more comprehensible so that effective action can be taken. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is seen through our data visualization work with the Health Foundation of South Florida, Healthy Eating Active Communities initiative.

  • Statistical Research

    Quantitative data analytic techniques are used to answer important questions you have about your projects. Appropriate research designs are formulated, data collection instruments developed or identified, and relevant data are obtained. Data can be analyzed utilizing descriptive, univariate and multivariate statistics.

  • Predictive Modeling

    Predictive modeling uses multivariate statistics to predict outcomes of interest. Historical data can be used to predict the occurrence of an event (e.g., sales) based on other factors (e.g., advertising campaign type). It can be used for a variety of practical purposes including the optimal allocation of limited program resources and the tailoring of programs to participants.

  • Logic Model

    A logic model is a one-page visual document that shows the link between inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes of an initiative or effort. Logic models are used by organizations for program and strategic planning as well as program evaluation. They help to clarify program priorities and outcomes and facilitate the building of consensus among stakeholders.

  • Evaluation Reporting

    We develop actionable reports to provide feedback to organizations. Products such as the One-Page Infographic Executive Summary are developed to encourage effective communication and utilization of findings. We also develop evaluation and program summaries in a video format to make information about projects more accessible to a broad audience.  View the visual program evaluation report we developed for Bridging Families and Communities in Miami, FL.

Customer & Employee Satisfaction

Customer and employee satisfaction are assessed using survey research methods. The satisfaction of the individuals you serve is a key performance indicator and impacts their loyalty to your organization. Also, better employee engagement and satisfaction are associated with a host of positive outcomes for organizations such as less turnover, lower absenteeism, and better performance.
