Client Performance and Social Value 

Rating the Social Value of Programs

Our work with clients always focuses on the social value of their programs.  We are currently working with Social Solutions, Inc. - one of our Strategic Partners - to develop a tool that human and social service agencies, and funders too, can use to assess the degree to which an organization's claims for a program's value are supported by data.  The framework for understanding the tool is provided in a White Paper on effective social investing, and our current version of a tool for rating the likely capacity of a nonprofit organization to deliver social value reliably.

faq:

Should all programs be evaluated using randomized control trials?

No!  Randomized control trials should only be undertaken after a program has been delivered to a well-defined target population reliably, consistently, and with high fidelity to a codified program model for several years.  Moreover, before a randomized control trial is undertaken, an implementation (or formative) evaluation should be used to document these facts and allow for program modifications to improve effectiveness.
