At Via Evaluation, we are passionate about applying evaluation, coaching, and organizational development tools to help clients understand their progress and obstacles they can address in achieving their goals. While traditional grants and program evaluations are one way to reach this end, many of our clients have expressed interest in using evaluative tools for projects specifically tailored to their needs.
To meet this need, we have custom-designed several products. However, the types of custom-designed projects are not limited to those we have completed in the past. We are constantly exploring creative approaches, new research, and new methods that could be matched to your needs.
