Development Solutions provides end-to-end tailored advisory solutions to clients working on social impact. Our advice is rooted in evidence and informs strategic thinking that accounts for ground realities.
We create and implement complete M&E solutions to enable clients to track progress toward programme and project goals and objectives. Our offerings include designing theory of change, identifying quantitative and qualitative factors for tracking progress, improving systems, and assessing performance. We also offer third-party independent evaluations to assess program impact. We examine the efficacy of internal processes, quantify outputs, and assess impact at each point of the project cycle, using quantitative and qualitative approaches. In delivering services, we leverage expertise in statistical, analytical and technological methods. While delivering M&E services, including evaluation, we emphasize provision of actionable recommendations.
Our research services help clients obtain the evidence required to make informed and practical decisions. Our studies contribute to a better understanding of the perspectives of marginalized groups and communities on research issues. We are adept in quantitative and qualitative research techniques, as well as secondary data review. We tailor methodologies (surveys, interviews, participatory research, observation etc.) based on the problem statement and client needs.
We work with clients to refine program plans, intervention design, implementation strategy and impact measurement. Our solutions are drawn on evidence from our research and deep field experience across sectors. Our services also extend to provision of organization development services including leadership capacity building, strategic reviews, process design and succession planning among others.
We assist clients in disseminating knowledge to key government and media stakeholders to raise salience of social issues. DS also carries out policy evaluation and analysis to aid policy makers, program implementers and communities.
