The key to evaluation is understanding what you are trying to measure and how much information you need to make the best decision.
A deep understanding of the problem, defining your objectives, understanding your stakeholders, and setting targets are key preliminary steps in a successful evaluation. Basil Data helps you organize each step in the project to eliminate the hiccups as you execute.
Both for-profit and nonprofit social enterprises benefit from a consistent data collection strategy. However, often the resources are scarce and data expertise is limited.
