The interim evaluations of FamilyPoint Cymru, Sustainable Play and Go Green for Health went well and we are starting on the next phase of each evaluation now. It is striking that the two organisations behind these projects, ProMo Cymru and Groundwork Wales, are places where the staff appear to be happy and enjoy their work. Maybe that is because they are values-driven organisations that attract staff drawn to those values, or maybe it is simple good leadership. Certainly, organisations with good leadership and strong values tend to thrive.
While evaluation remains the major component of our work, with projects on-going with Guildford Cathedral and Jisc, it is not the only string to our bow. Development of project management across organisations remains a core activity. In this respect, we are currently helping a household name consumer product company to improve its approach to managing projects.
An exciting development has been drawing together our strengths in training and project evaluation to create the new Inquire tool with our friends from the PD Centre. This agile approach to organisational evaluation can be applied to address a wide range of needs, from understanding the organisation before designing a training intervention to understanding whether a project is likely to bring about intended change.
