LI2 is an evidence-driven framework and process for change designed to unite those doing the work and researchers toward a common goal: building evidence to improve lives.
LI2 builds on the combined strengths of researchers and people with on-the-ground experience that have a clear understanding of program and practice needs. When we work together, our contributions can generate better evidence that improves programs, the field of research, and—ultimately—outcomes for people and families.
What sets LI2 apart is the emphasis on co-creation throughout the process, user-friendly analytic methods, and the explicit focus on building the capabilities of leaders for evidence driven decision making and generating evidence to strengthen the field.
LI2 supports public agencies and organizations as they:
How can I use LI2 in my organization?
LI2 can be used to guide strategy, evaluation, and improvement initiatives, such as replicating and scaling an evidence-based practice, conducting a formative evaluation, building a new process or approach for your program, establishing a framework for continuous improvement, or co-creating with those your program is designed to serve. Using LI2 as our framework, we created Goal4 It!™, a science-based model for helping individuals pursue meaningful goals, which has been implemented in dozens of human services programs across the country.
