Evaluation is more than a project assessment or satisfaction survey
Evaluation, done thoughtfully and thoroughly, can:
- Identify areas for growth and innovation,
- Drive change,
- Empower communities, and
- Amplify a program’s effectiveness and impact.
We know program development and implementation can take unexpected turns. The Abacus team is your evaluation and improvement partner from early planning to data collection to reporting.
The team at Abacus is passionate about helping you get the right data at the right time, so you know if your programs and partnerships are successful and are making authentic, lasting change.
Evaluation goes beyond just checking a box
The status quo perspectives on evaluation have changed. Evaluation can add value to your team and project in areas beyond an end-of-year report. It can continuously improve programs, understand the context of outcomes, and provide vital information back to your communities.
We’re driven to give evaluation work new resonance and support our clients with evaluation approaches that spark innovation and build equity.
Evaluation is distinct
Abacus puts clients first. We value collaboration and responsiveness to client priorities and goals. Our team has deep experience evaluating a wide range of health, training, and human service initiatives. We create solutions tailored to each client’s specific evaluation needs.
We support large research center initiatives and small-scale project evaluations and create custom training to demystify analysis methods and tools. We use evidence-based approaches to help organizations, communities, grant seekers, and awardees understand and communicate program impact.
