This year and throughout the “Decade of Evaluation for Action” we will continue to deliver corporate strategy planning solutions that are built with evaluation in mind. Both strategy and plans that make the next phases of the strategy continuum easy and more impactful.
The coronavirus pandemic has and will erase some of the progress made towards realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), on top of the risk of failure to meet the targets that existed before COVID 19.
As such we look forward to facilitating the use of evaluation and organizational assessments in order to help drive impact.
Of special interest for us are planning that supports evaluation, evaluation, and organizational assessments in the following areas:
- Market systems development programmes,
- Caribbean immigrant community serving not-for-profits,
- International development programmes and projects related to trade, climate finance, Environment, private sector development,
- Economic development clusters, and areas where geographical indicators is being used to protect intellectual property and hopefully equitable benefit from local resources, culture, and traditional practice as well as
- diaspora development events and programmes.
We will continue to integrate research, training, evaluation how-s and whys into our Outride: COVID 19 Business Threat Seminar series which is grounded in risk intelligence. Monitoring, evaluation, assessment, and improvement are crucial to building risk intelligence and risk intelligence competence in our diaspora and mainstream organizations. During series 9, which will be held on June 11, 2020 we will shift the focus on evaluation and organizational assessments to communication.
And more so the risks of growing or maintaining a culture that embraces pseudo-evaluations, ideological marketing, deception; and the frustrations that comes from a solo focus on funder driven transparency and accountability focused evaluations to the neglect of organizational strategy, mission, vision, growth and innovation. We will be helping our attendees in the non-profit sector in particular to look at the opportunity for integrating the GCS framework in the communications component of their programmes.
It is our hope that by taking this approach the thirst for truth, impact, innovation or innovative, relevance and improvement will be a part of what they do from the start.
If you operate a Caribbean diaspora organization join us along with our entrepreneurs on June 11, 2020 for the next series with something powerful for you when it comes to performance and improvement.
To our entrepreneurs, no need to worry as you’ve seen before we will have your piece of the pie ready for you as usual. This time around the focus will be on financial evaluation for credit.
We commit to building partnerships on evaluation. We could go on and on about the benefits of partnership from different perspectives including ownership, democracy, learning, as well as in relation to consulting partnerships who partner. But why not check in for a chat on that one.
Mark your calendars for the #Eval4Action Global Marathon of Engagement.
