The Measurement, Learning, and Evaluation (MLE) Consulting Lab is an intensive consulting experience for professionals interested in linking their organizational strategy to their measurement and evaluation efforts.

In small cohorts, organizations have the opportunity to advance their skills for developing and successfully implementing an MLE practice at the portfolio, initiative, strategy, or organization level. This includes how to use helpful frameworks, facilitation tools, and techniques to bring others along. Beyond the technical nuts and bolts, we also focus on how to effectively develop practices and processes to support adoption and use as well as to build organizational momentum around MLE. This is our third time leading the MLE Lab and we’ve made some updates, like adding a section on embedding race equity into your practice.

The Lab format includes a two-and-a-half day in-person launch with the entire cohort, five facilitated online webinars with the cohort, and individualized coaching for each organization.

Benefits of the Lab:

  • Link strategy and evaluation | Focus on how to de-silo your strategy and evaluation efforts by weaving an optimal, fit-to-purpose MLE practice into your organizational structure.
  • Develop a toolkit of approaches | MLE can be technical. Learn how to make the technical accessible by building up your own toolkit of facilitation techniques and frameworks,  to engage others from your organization in MLE practice.
  • Build momentum within your organization | Think through how to embed MLE practice into your organization and how to get people on board and bought into the idea of MLE.
  • Become a learning organization | Increase the use of data to inform practices and decisions. Become familiar with learning processes to enhance your MLE practice.
