We developed our skills through academic study followed by years of experience conducting research and evaluation in the public, private and not for profit sectors.

Evaluation

Our evaluations provide information about what is working, opportunities for improvement, where to invest resources and how to measure your success. Our evaluations are based on evaluation theory. We incorporate kaupapa Māori and Pacifica methodologies.  Co-design and collaboration are important principles underpinning our work.

Some examples of our work in evaluation are the evaluation of the Ministry of Health’s Maternity and Child Services Integration Project, the evaluation of the Health Literacy Demonstration Project and the evaluation of the Partners in Care programme.

Performance

Monitoring performance sits alongside evaluation. We are experts in developing robust, theory based performance and monitoring strategies.

Some examples of our work in performance monitoring are the Medical Council of New Zealand: Establishing a Prevocational Training Baseline, the Sorted Whānau Financial Capability Education and Problem Gambling Study and the Review of Access for People with Disabilities.
