Welcome to Evaluation & Communication in practice

This site contains evaluation and research communication mentoring tools, articles and case studies. Our work is relevant to practitioners, to commissioners of evaluation & communication, and to scholars in both fields.


We provide Utilization-Focused Evaluation (U-FE) mentoring as a decision-making framework that helps organizations improve their strategies.

We provide Research Communication (ResCom) mentoring to help organizations communicate their findings more effectively.

The U-FE and ResCom hybrid enables project leaders to become adaptive managers.

We do research on how to better use evaluation and communication to influence public policy.

We enjoy sharing our findings with other people and organizations who are also keen learners.

Our knowledge base offers a wide range of materials that can help you learn more about our experience.

“The process helped us to be very intentional and strategic at formulating and achieving our communication objectives… For example, we participated at the public enquiry that was done to modify the existing law on the protection of personal data and government officials took some of our inputs."

Asociación Derechos Civiles (ADC) – Argentina, 2016
