Client Spotlight: Project PAVE

How to shift the internal culture to embrace evaluation

Project PAVE experiences a positive transformation in how their team thinks about and approaches evaluation

Coaching

We elevate and support your in-house evaluator

JaggedLine3_peach_350px.png

Internal team members tasked with evaluation often feel very isolated, with no one to turn to for support, and aren’t able to do their best evaluation work as a result. We provide the training and support needed to maximize that role for a fraction of the cost it would take to have another expert on staff. 

Ongoing support and training. Answers when you need them. 

You can expect:

  • Learn new evaluation skills

  • Clarify evaluation’s role in reaching the organization’s strategic goals 

  • Feel motivated by the support and connection to the evaluation field

  • Implement a step-by-step process to build an internal culture of learning and reflection

  • Receive expert support, leading to more effective evaluation practices

Staffing Solutions

We help you find the right hire

JaggedLine3_peach_350px.png

Many nonprofits reach a place where it makes sense to have internal evaluation staff, but the leadership lacks the evaluation expertise to understand what skills are really needed. We help fill this gap.

Craft an appropriate position. Attract a good fit.

Together we:

  • Define the role evaluation plays within your organization

  • Decide which potential department makes the most sense for the evaluation function

  • Prioritize evaluation skill sets based on what you need to achieve

  • Reconcile what you would like for this role, and what is realistic

  • Advise on an appropriate salary for the position to attract and keep the right people

  • Develop a job description that communicates all of the above

  • Assist in posting the position to get it in front of the right people

  • Aid with candidate screening and the interview process

  • Support the onboarding process for this new role. We help integrate the new person into the Colorado evaluation community and provide support and mentoring in the case this is missing internally.
