Evaluation & Expert Assessments

What you need.

You would like to know how effective your organisation or activities are. You ask yourself whether and why your projects have achieved success, what further impacts are associated with them, and how these effects can be further improved or achieved more efficiently.

What we offer.

Our evaluations and expert assessments provide you with a sound basis for valuation and decision-making. We have a broad understanding of different analytical approaches such as theory-based evaluation, contribution analysis, or counter-factual impact analysis. We combine these approaches with our methodical expertise from a wide range of disciplines to carry out appropriate quantitative and qualitative analyses. In doing so, we use different data and information – provided or publicly accessible, but also our own surveys and models. This enables us to answer your questions in a targeted manner.

This gives you a foundation for optimising your organisation or projects. We attach great importance to presenting the results of our evaluation in a clear and understandable way – helping you to communicate and implement your conclusions and recommendations more easily. In our ex-ante, accompanying/formative or ex-post evaluations, we work in accordance with DeGEval standards.
