Russlaw supports clients with formative and summative program evaluation to help them shape, improve, and transform programs for greater effectiveness.
Whether performing an insightful, early-stage evaluation or a data-rich, long-term evaluation, Russlaw applies highly rigorous methodologies to help clients determine how a program measures up and find methods by which clients can improve programs.
