Impact Evaluation

Show Your Colors. Public agencies and nonprofit organizations face increasing pressure to demonstrate economic impact and quantify their social return on investment. MBK Analytics’ program evaluation and quantitative analysis services establish this evidence base, helping clients to show the importance and effectiveness of their existing initiatives, and demonstrate the value they generate. In addition to highlighting the organization’s strengths, evaluation and assessment can also identify areas with potential for growth.

Strategic Consulting

Gain Perspective. Economic recessions and constrained fiscal environments can require sacrifices, which may include giving up planned projects or programs. But these downturns can also provide organizations with opportunities to reassess their goals and objectives, and re-align their resources to achieve those goals.

MBK Analytics helps client organizations to ensure that their policies and resources are effectively and efficiently aligned to best support the organization’s mission and goals. Often, along the way, we assist clients in identifying and communicating the value their organization is uniquely positioned and well-suited to provide. When the goals and value proposition are clearer, we help clients distill short- and long-term objectives, plan strategic actions, and establish measures for their progress, providing important feedback for the organization’s long-run viability and resilience.

Predictive Modeling

Find a Path Forward. Agile, robust policies and investment decisions require managers to anticipate the effects of future external developments and policy changes on their organizations and their key stakeholders. Our empirical, quantitative models and simulation studies explore the sensitivity of your organization’s future trajectory to the decisions you make today.
