Research & Evaluation
Research and evaluation are systematic methods for collecting, analyzing, and interpreting information to answer important questions that guide projects, policies, and programs.
We conduct both qualitative and quantitative research and prefer a mixed methods approach. It is our ability to focus on the details while emphasizing the big picture that allows our clients to have confidence in our results.
