Great River Consulting is my consulting practice. I work primarily with clients in the social, community and educational sector providing high quality evaluation and planning services. I like to work collaboratively with clients providing meaningful findings and outcomes to advance projects and programs.
Through systematic gathering and analysis of data, organizations use program evaluation to learn, to make better programming decisions, to make the best use of limited resources, to manage proactively, to improve outcomes and to show stakeholders the value of their investment. We use a variety of approaches but work closely with clients with a focus on rigorous, positive informative and usable results.
Working collaboratively with clients, I guide and support the development of strategic plans.
Together, we look at where an organization is now, where it wants to be in the future and then we maps a path forward with measures of progress and success.
