Monitoring, evaluation and learning
The Community Works team is highly experienced in designing and conducting evaluations.
The Community Works team is highly experienced in designing and conducting evaluations. We are often asked to advise on approaches to evaluating complex projects and programs and this can involve:
• Helping communities and organisations define the outcomes they are seeking to measure
• Developing appropriate indicators and methods for collecting data
• Facilitating events designed to promote learning and reflection
• Analysing project processes that have led to outcomes and impacts
• Supporting and coaching organisations to improve their impact assessment work
• Providing recommendations to organisations in written and visual formats
• Helping boards and committees integrate monitoring, evaluation and learning into their practice.
Recently we have been engaged by many different organisations to work with them on monitoring, evaluating and learning from their work, including Amnesty International (through Pamodzi Consulting), the Australian Government Dept of Prime Minister and Cabinet (through Ninti One), Enterprise Learning Projects and GRM International (through QUT. This work has involved a range of themes including:
• Support for human rights in Kenya and Slovenia
• Arts and culture initiatives in remote Australia
• Water and sanitation initiatives internationally
• Services for children and families in Aboriginal communities in Australia
• Resource extraction and community impacts in Africa.
We have a very strong belief in the value of good monitoring and evaluation processes to make a difference to the quality of project and programs. Please contact us for an initial discussion.
