Evaluation will help you:
How do you know that your efforts are achieving the intended results? GDI has over 30 years of experience in evaluating programs, conferences, and workshops all around the globe. We will help you maximize program effectiveness and meet grant and aid evaluation requirements through comprehensive mid-point monitoring and final evaluation. In addition, using guided interviews, focus groups and surveys, we can do pre-test and post-test measurements to identify critical impacts. We can gather reliable feedback from beneficiaries, stakeholders, implementers, and clients on strengths and challenges that reside in any program. Our evaluations have led to significant improvements in deliverables, from fine-tuning of materials to major restructuring of international programs.

From implementation of the World Bank's resettlement policy to the impact of hospital restructuring on nurses, GDI has examined complex issues with social science expertise. For this type of research, we use "triangulation" of methods (mixed methods), as appropriate, but especially focus groups, individual interviews, surveys, and analysis of existing data and organizational reports.
How do you know what clients and stakeholders need? What are their interests? What services and supports do they receive from other organizations? What services are falling between the cracks? GDI will carefully explore constituent needs so that you can target programs, messages, and materials for greatest effectiveness. A good needs assessment leads to realistic organizational priorities.
