Making the Most of Evaluation


During Informing Change’s multi-year evaluation of the Community Clinics Initiative (CCI), we observed that CCI was particularly effective in extracting knowledge and lessons while the evaluation was underway. This made their grantmaking more responsive and strategic.

In this article, we identify five tactics that CCI used to ensure that the evaluation and its findings were real-time learning tools that could be employed right away. We also share how CCI’s unique approach to a widely accepted evaluation process has led to better-than-average success.
