Evaluation & Impact Assessment

“Working out what works and what doesn’t is a fundamental principle to better policy making … having the information on which to make that decision is key”

Our work in evaluation and impact assessment covers the full evaluation cycle: from project & programme appraisal; to evaluation methodological support; to interim formative assessment; and final summative evaluation.

In our experience of evaluating numerous government and European funded programmes CMI’s work has focused on complex evaluations and blends qualitative and quantitative research methods based on robust and tested evaluation frameworks and tools.

Our strengths lie in our track record of turning qualitative approaches into quantitative, tangible results that shape and advise policy for government organisations across Wales, UK and Europe. The extensive academic, policy and practical experience of our team means that frameworks and recommendations are grounded in both current theory and academic evidence with a clear understanding and appreciation of the operation of public programmes.
