Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning

QED has specialized in monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) since the company was founded in 1998. We use this foundation, alongside our strong culture of innovation and technology, to provide cutting edge, proactive, and right-sized MEL solutions to clients around the globe.

Our approach helps clients better use the data they have before pursuing modern approaches to data collection and analysis. QED’s efforts result in better informed managers and more evidence-based decision-making with a focus on local leadership and engagement.

Our experts use proven quantitative and qualitative methodologies, paired with experimental and quasi-experimental survey and study designs, to ensure sound evaluations of client programs and projects. By emphasizing specialized training and mentoring, QED is able to strengthen the M&E capabilities of our implementing partners and local stakeholders. QED also integrates knowledge management (KM) dissemination tools allowing clients to rapidly collaborate, learn, and adapt their methods to empirical findings.
