Gathering the right data and knowing how to use it . . . is what matters

Data Driven Decision Making – Evaluation – Continuous Quality Improvement – Accountability –  Performance Measurement – Getting to Outcomes – Value Propositions

Whatever you call it, everybody’s talking about it . . . and Apter & O’Connor can help!

A&O is working with a wide array of non-profits and coalitions to build their internal evaluation capacity so they can measure impact, improve program planning and become more competitive for funding. We help organizations:

Articulate a Theory of Change

Define intended outcomes

Develop measurable indicators and data collection methods

Explore the data they already collect and create tools for additional information

Design user-friendly reports to document efforts and demonstrate impact
