Consulting services to improve the impact of research for nonprofits and NGOs
Excellent research and evaluation are critical foundations for nonprofits and NGOs to create positive change. But sometimes even the best research doesn't have the impact that we intend--it doesn't answer the right questions, it doesn't reach the right people at the right time, or it isn't presented in the right way to capture your audience's attention. In short, nonprofit research all too often ends up being used by academics instead of policymakers and practitioners, if it is used at all.
IS YOUR RESEARCH MAKING AN IMPACT?
Public Action Research (PAR) helps nonprofits and NGOs improve the their research and evaluation strategies and impact. We focus on three core issues: Are you asking the best questions for impact? Have you identified the most important audiences for impact? And are you packaging your research and evaluation in the most effective way to have an impact?
We have a unique mix of expertise: undertaking qualitative/quantitative research and evaluations, developing high-quality publications, and deploying a broad array of strategic communications, including print- and web-based products targeting both internal and external audiences.
