Neelima Grover founded The QED Group in 1998 for one reason – to ensure that data is used to drive good decisions. Hence the name QED which stands for Quod Erat Demonstrandum or “as proven or as demonstrated.”
Neelima realized the importance of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to drive good decisions. If M&E information was accessible, it could be presented to decision makers in a way that they could learn from it and use it to drive good decisions. Data when presented simply can have a transformational impact in driving the right decisions.
Under Neelima’s leadership QED won its first contract as a prime contractor with the Federal Government in 1999. QED’s on-going work for the federal government has been instrumental in driving US Government policy in M&E and adaptive management ever since, with QED being recognized as one of the preeminent thought leaders in the space. Neelima continues to be passionate in making M&E insightful and understandable and finding ways to introduce technology in the delivery of new M&E solutions.
