Hamden, CT (PRWEB) January 10, 2013

Hunter Consulting, LLC, an organization that provides performance management consulting for the social services sector, today announced the availability of new web-based tools that allow organizations to enhance overall program quality and effectiveness.

Designed to help social service organizations improve the likelihood of having a positive impact on the lives of those they serve, these cost-effective, web-based tools provide immediate, customized advice related to a program´s evaluation readiness and an organization´s ability to generate social value.

“For far too long, the social services sector has grappled with performance management, which has always been the big white elephant in the room,” said David Hunter, Ph.D, Founder, Hunter Consulting. “These new tools provide automated, tailored, advice that will provide social service organizations with the insight needed to enhance their ability to improve the lives of those they serve — in a very cost effective manner.”

By answering some very straightforward questions, social service providers can receive the following reports, which are fully customized and unique for every organization and program:

  • Evaluation Readiness Self Assessment Tool: By answering 9 questions in a multiple-choice format, the Evaluation Readiness Self Assessment Tool ($49.95), provides an instant report designed to help nonprofit leaders, such as executive teams, and boards of directors, as well as interested stakeholders such as funders, assess an organization’s evaluation-readiness, either formative or summative.
  • Organizational Management Capacity Self-Assessment Tool (OMSAT): The OMSAT ($99.95) asks 30 straightforward questions, also in a multiple-choice format, and provides immediate assessment reports to enable leaders of social service agencies to evaluate whether its clients are apt to benefit, as intended, from the programming and services the agency offers.
