Work With Us

Adaptive Management and Evidence

From climate change to organizational learning, our clients and partners face complex, dynamic issues. We devise strategies that enable real-time adjustments and continuous learning, enhancing the prospects of long-term success. By streamlining processes and fostering adaptive management skills at project and institutional levels, we equip organizations to manage uncertainty, surmount barriers, and foster continuous improvement.

Our Approach

Effective adaptive management enables individuals and organizations to meet their goals within complex and unpredictable systems. To help teams overcome institutional and social barriers to adaptation, we foster a culture of evidence use. We design strategies that incentivize evidence-based decision making, allowing for real-time adjustments and continuous learning. We emphasize the development of adaptive management skills, the design of robust monitoring, evaluation, and learning systems, and the importance of regular reflection, all of which equip organizations to make informed decisions and achieve their goals. Through our approach, clients can manage uncertainty, drive systemic change, and increase the likelihood of long-term success.

Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting

When it comes to managing complex systems, organizations that can effectively collaborate, learn, and adapt create more lasting impacts. Recognizing that institutional and social norms can create barriers to adapting to changing circumstances, we strengthen individual and organizational capacity in collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) across program phases, enabling program managers to respond to dynamic contexts by learning and doing.

Data Management and Visualization

Data is only effective if it can be easily understood and used to inform decisions. With a strong focus on data integrity and responsible practices, we design accessible databases, mobile apps, and interfaces to store, protect, analyze, and clearly report research findings. Our expertise spans qualitative and quantitative analyses, impact evaluation, mixed methods, geospatial analyses, and data visualization. We build the capacity of our clients to leverage data as an asset and support an evidence-based practice.

Evidence-Informed Decision Support

Even the best evidence is of low value if it cannot be accessed and used by decision makers. We work directly with our clients to help them use evidence to create change. Our focus on the end-user allows us to quickly mobilize relevant technical expertise and analytic capabilities, ensuring that decision support systems deliver actionable information aligned to our clients’ needs.

Fit for Purpose Evidence


Monitoring and Evaluation

Organizations often struggle to understand the effectiveness of their programs or lack the information needed to adapt and improve along the way. By defining relevant, clear metrics with our clients, we can effectively measure progress toward program goals, adapt implementation approaches, and demonstrate success. We facilitate the design and implementation of robust, evidence-based monitoring and evaluation systems grounded in a project’s theory of change that guide programming based on learning and evidence.
