Impact modelling

Impact modelling

Impact modelling brings quantitative rigour to project evaluation, giving funders and delivery teams numeric estimates of benefits and returns.

Our experience and strengths

At Scarlatti we employ a holistic approach, blending quantitative rigor with qualitative insights.

Our experience includes evaluation of training programmes, extension networks and talent attraction programmes.

We use our networks to draw on expertise and gain insight from industry or client-held data.

Our team are experts at leveraging the Stats NZ Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) database to extract and interpret trends in national or regional government data to evaluate project impact.

Our impact modelling:

“Impact modelling can overcome three big challenges seen with traditional evaluation methods; high costs of evaluation activities, attributing outcomes to particular activities, and the time required to measure outcome changes.”

Estimating the Impact of Extension Activities

Extension teams are made up of awesome people trying to do amazing things, but how do we measure the impact of the work these teams are doing?

Our approach

01.

Develop logic models

We develop logic models to describe how interventions work and add a quantitative overlay to arrive at quantitative estimates of their impact.

Quantitative evaluation

Using the Stats NZ Integrated Data Infrastructure database (IDI), we can evaluate whether a programme is effective in driving its participants’ practice change.
