Learn, improve, evidence and tell the story of the difference you make
What we do and why
We provide tools and techniques to bring together evidence, data and evaluation to ensure that projects and programmes work successfully towards outcomes, are successful and adaptable, and can demonstrate that success to funders, service-users and other stakeholders.
Who is our approach for?
We have developed our practical and robust approach for teams and organisations working towards a vision for social change, who know that numbers alone can’t tell the full story of the difference they make.
What to expect from the Matter of Focus approach:
Support and help on your outcome and impact evaluation journey
Our approach takes you through a tried and tested process of mapping your outcomes and impacts, identifying data and evidence, tracking progress and reporting in an outcome-focused way.
Using our innovative and participatory outcome mapping approach, we will work with your team or organisation to understand and build consensus about how activities lead to outcomes or impact and what is needed to understand change.
Our approach to talking about context that uses the 'ISM Framework' to help you identify the factors that arise in individual, social and material contexts you need consider when setting up or evaluating an initiative.
Our innovative cloud-based software Outnav, takes you on a logical and user-friendly journey through steps to develop a meaningful and practical approach to outcome-focused monitoring and evaluation. Make effective use of your data and information to monitor and evaluate your outcome-focused projects, without the need for specialist research skills or external evaluators.
We provide face to face and virtual support services to help you on your outcome evaluation journey. We can support you to map your outcomes, develop theories of change, collect and analyse data to evidence your work, and help with reporting.
