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
And the reviews have been positive! As one executive director recently noted:
Cynthia was critical in moving us forward with measuring outcomes of our programs. We now are able to collect data to show the impact of our programs and use data to make informed decisions about those programs. Cynthia was able to teach us how to break down this process so that it wasn’t so overwhelming.

We are in a different place thanks to our work with Apter & O’Connor. They facilitated some very difficult conversations and moved the agency forward sometimes with a gentle nudge and other times with a strong shove. I have enjoyed working with you and so appreciate your guidance and advice professionally and personally.
