WHAT IS EVALUATION?

Evaluation is now an expected part of all project management. Organisations of all types and sizes are under increasing pressure to evaluate their results and account for the money they invest in their people and projects and programme. The demand to be able to do this is rising rapidly, particularly for projects and programmes that:

  • Have a long life cycle
  • Are linked to key organisational goals and objectives
  • Are relatively expensive
  • Have high internal or external visibility
  • Address large target audiences.

Most fail to do this with any consistency or credibility because they neither plan for nor collect the data they require.
The Certificate in Human Capital Investment planning provides an introduction to the framework, tools and disciplines required to plan for impact, and then to track it and report its achievement.

The Certificate in Evaluating Human Capital Investment and Postgraduate Certificate in Impact and Performance measurement cover more advanced sections of the approach, covering various aspects from Data Collection, Isolation, and Action Planning to Implementation for your project.

Further details of our approach can be found on the Our Approach page.
