Rapid-Cycle Evaluation

Rapid-cycle evaluation uses a rigorous, scientific approach to provide decision makers with timely and actionable evidence of whether operational changes improve program outcomes.

With rapid-cycle evaluation, program or process changes can be tested in a matter of months, and decision makers can have a high degree of confidence in the results. Rapid-cycle evaluation helps program and foundation leaders make evidence-backed decisions efficiently and cost-effectively, avoiding investments in changes that are unlikely to produce the desired results.
