Nothing at Sharp Insight is a “one size fits all” approach.  We closely partner with our clients to customize an evaluation approach at every phase of our work – from proposal development to the final product.  As a highly collaborative evaluation firm, it is of utmost importance to us that we work with your staff and stakeholders to develop the tools, reports, and trainings that best fit your organization. 

Whenever feasible, we also work to increase the evaluation capacity of our clients.  Whether through customized trainings or workshops, hands-on coaching, or staff “how to’s”, we work to enhance your team’s ability to continue tracking, analyzing, and reporting on your program’s progress in the future.
