Impact

You're here to create positive change.

How can you do that most effectively?

We work with clients at all stages to answer this core question. You will work with a program evaluator who will help you obtain and leverage qualitative and quantitative data to more fully understand your key stakeholders, measure impact, succeed in continual process improvement, and create change at scale.

Our work helps you:

Better engage and understand stakeholders

Elevate the experience of your most valued clients, consumers and collaborators. Practice data informed decision making and let their stories inform improvements and guide inclusive ownership of programs, products and outcomes.

Develop clearer, more credible communications

Work with our professional data analysts to get accurate data about processes, impact, and improvement. Speak more clearly about your work as it aligns with your organizational goals and mission.

Create higher quality programs and products

Do more of what’s working and less of what isn’t: maximize impact, uncover blindspots, save time, eliminate waste. Make what’s already good, even better.

Leverage support

Develop resources and insights that leverage fundraising, marketing, partnerships, and community engagement. Show the world what’s working and how you will do more of it.

Successfully and responsibly scale

Refine your value proposition and your development framework to replicate and scale, eventually monetizing as consultants to other organizations.

I have worked with evaluators who are incredibly precise and brilliant at what they do, but they have blinders on. Jessica doesn't have the blinders and that really stands her apart. We work in higher education, and she brought us parallels within public health and other sectors that really resonated and offered greater insight. There's a real significance to her ability to have big picture worldview, as well as narrow, targeted focus.

Transformational outcomes can happen at any scale.

We work across sectors, silos, and regions — engaging large national, gatekeeper institutions; linchpin agencies in regional and local economies; and small to medium-sized organizations that provide services and solutions to meet the social, economic and global opportunities of our time.
