Evaluation & Research

Evaluation

How we can help

  • Program evaluations
  • Impact assessments
  • Operational Reviews

At Laridae, we understand that when evaluations are aligned with program goals and objectives, evaluation tools and methodologies can be seamlessly integrated into organizational processes and can help build effectiveness and efficiencies into programs, assist with strategic decision-making, clarify communication, and create momentum and enthusiasm for staff who are implementing the program. All of these lead to better program delivery and more satisfied clients.

With extensive experience in program and operational reviews, Laridae understands that for an evaluation to yield results, it needs to take many variables in to consideration, including: funder expectations, client needs, program resources, organizational capacity, quality assurance, risk assessment, community partnerships, and sector challenges, among others.

We have a repertoire of tried, tested and true qualitative and quantitative evaluation methodologies that we adapt to meet our clients’ needs. As continuous learners, we are always investigating the latest evaluation theories, tools, and templates. Finally, we are diligent at monitoring and assessing the framework, and we adjust accordingly to ensure it is producing the results needed to make informed strategic decisions.
