What we do

Evaluation Consult’s aim is to assist you and your organisation to go forward with clear purpose. This is achieved by linking planning, measuring outcomes, monitoring, reporting and then using the information in further planning. The complete cycle of activity achieves the best results and fulfills Evaluation Consult’s primary principle that results and outcomes frameworks should be focused on achieving change.

Our approach

Evaluation Consult's approach is practical and results-based, focused on achieving change and building better futures for people in both developed and developing countries.

We call this approach DOME™ (Development Outcomes Monitoring and Evaluation). It provides organisations and countries with the tools and techniques required to identify development goals, design outcomes frameworks, monitor and measure results and finally evaluate and use the information gathered to improve the lives of people.

DOME™ is fast becoming a leading approach for results-based monitoring and evaluation in New Zealand and internationally. 

Evaluation Consult team members use the DOME™ methodology to monitor and report on outcomes. We build on relevant existing development work wherever possible in order to provide value for money. We focus on providing high quality and professional services to meet each client’s needs.

 Our style of working is:

  • a partnership – we work together with you
  • relevant – we focus on your key information needs
  • achievable – we keep your projects straightforward
  • useful – we listen to you and assist you with decision-making.

As well as using DOME™ methodology in our projects, we offer training workshops so that individuals and organisations can develop the understanding and capability to use this approach in their work.  Learn more about the DOME™ training workshops
