Hi, I’m Jill Lipski Cain, a Managing Consultant here at IG.
We are always looking for creative ways to communicate evaluation findings, especially when it can make our work more accessible to those who participated.
That’s why for a recent project, we used a podcast to share some of what emerged in the evaluation.
Hey! Courtney Clingan here – I’m a Senior Consultant at The Improve Group, and I’ve become known around the office as IG’s “Logic Model Maven!” These popular planning tools help organizations produce a concise visualization of all of a program’s components and how they fit together to make change and achieve program goals.
Hello! I am Audrey McIntyre and in this month’s IG-ology I am going to talk about a visual process that can help individuals and groups gain more clarity in their work.
Do you have a Theory of Change that is collecting dust? Do you want people you work with to take action based on evidence? If so, then this month's IG-ology is for you!
How much progress is the State of Minnesota making toward its goals of ensuring people with disabilities can live, learn, work, and enjoy life in the most integrated setting?
We recently said farewell to Daren Nyquist, who served as one of IG’s Directors of Consulting since 2015. Daren’s going back to the public sector, something to which he has always been drawn, to work with Dakota County.
Daren both oversaw projects and played a leadership role internally, improving our evaluation practice and overseeing different groups of consultants. While we are sad to see a long-time coworker move on, we are happy to have learned from Daren during his time here.
Hi! I’m Amy Cyr, a senior consultant here at IG. For this month’s IG-ology, I want to tell you some of the considerations we take into account when choosing a data collection method.
As a registered Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) with the State of Minnesota, each year we report on our impact. Our 2018 report details how we made progress toward our three strategic goals:
Do you spend too much time digging through your program data to answer specific questions? Are you looking for a better way to turn your data into relevant, easily-digestible information?
We often work with clients to build streamlined data systems that help them organize and dive in to relevant data at the click of a button. For example, say you work for a program that serves multiple schools within several school districts. With a streamlined system, you could easily pull the data by site, grade, or demographic group and run cross tabulations to quickly answer questions at hand.
