Over the past 15 years, significant online and virtual activities and options have been central to our projects with more than 500 community-based organizations and 50 funders. The skills, techniques and resources we have developed for our remote consulting model are core to our work measuring and understanding change in communities across the country.
We continue to refine our approach and methods in real time – to learn from our ongoing work and offer flexible, practical and useful solutions that can meet the current and disparate needs of organizations in this difficult time. We strive to be learning partners with our clients as we share the same goal: to improve the lives and health of residents in communities. Now more than ever, this focus is critical, as the COVID-19 crisis is not just highlighting – but increasing – the extreme challenges for families and communities.
The Success Measures team brings a unique combination of sector and evaluation expertise, and a commitment to collaboration and responsiveness. Our core staff is supplemented by evaluation consultants based across the country who are deployed-remotely-to bring their diverse areas of content knowledge, skill sets and experience in regional and local geographies to benefit our clients.
Our library of more than 350 Success Measures data collection tools, the specialized Success Measures Data System and the templates and resource materials of the Evaluation Learning Center are ready and available for practitioners to incorporate into their work. We can tailor or customize technical assistance, measurement tools or evaluation planning consulting services to align with the focus and scope of your evaluation needs.
As you plan and conduct the important work ahead of you, we welcome the chance to learn about the needs in your community and explore how our expertise and expertise might support you.
