Change is not a temporary
interruption. We live in a society where it is increasingly important to demonstrate impact, and establish the effectiveness
and implementation of strategies and major initiatives.
The emphasis of our impact evaluation is forward looking, using the data and insights
to inform where your organisation is going and how it best manages change. The key benefits of research and evaluation
are that they drive stronger evidence-based policy and decision-making, inform calculated risk taking and thereby help to deliver better
outcomes to customers and service users.
Our impact research and evaluation could be of a whole organisation, a new project
or a theme; it may also profile successes or challenges of investments made. We will work with you from the outset,
scoping the work, advising on ways of increasing impact and evaluating the effectiveness of services.
Our commitment is to
work as your impact evaluation and research partner, assisting you to make full use of the findings and supporting you
to disseminate them in an accessible form. We work collaboratively with your staff, Board members, stakeholders, service users
and volunteers at all stages.
Evaluation can challenge received wisdom, creating resistance or resentment within an organisation. We are experienced
in helping organisations to manage such responses and can support you to make the best use of research and evaluation findings,
to enable organisational development, and to help you reach out to partners and communities of interest and geography.
The evaluation of the 18 month Talking Together programme is an example of the
evaluation work that HBMC undertakes, as you'll see by clicking on this link:
