We offer a diverse and extensive skill base

KBC Australia and our associates offer a diverse and extensive skill base to successfully deliver policy and program reviews, post-implementation review, formative evaluations, impact and outcome evaluation, facilitation and economic evaluation.

We tailor our approach to the requirement of the assignment and have experience in realist evaluation, implementation research, appreciative inquiry, utilization-focused and empowerment approaches and participatory evaluation.

In conjunction with the client we typically:

  • Develop an understanding of the context, the theory of change and develop the program logic
  • Develop an evaluation framework identifying key questions, data sources, data collection processes and data collection tools
  • Prepare the evaluation plan
  • Implement the evaluation or review with regular feedback to the client
  • Synthesise and triangulate findings
  • Formulate recommendations or way forward.

Methodologies employed include:

  • Environmental scans including published and grey literature reviews
  • Development of evaluation rubrics
  • Qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis;
  • Data linkage where indicated
  • Clinical information system data collection and analysis;
  • Comprehensive analytical discussion and synthesis of issues and evidence.

We adhere to the Australasian Evaluation Society Guidelines for the Ethical Conduct of Evaluations and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Guidelines for Ethical Research in Australian Indigenous Studies.
