ArtSpectives The Art of Consultation

 

ArtSpectives’ objective for our clients is to reduce resistance and stagnation in career or workplace allowing for more productivity, satisfaction, and harmony. We bring these desired effects to our clients by our keen abilities to observe, identify, and designate. Why hire a consultant? Let me use the words taken from Entrepreneur Media Inc to answer that question.

A consultant has the right expertise. A consultant may be hired to identify problems. Sometimes employees are too close to a problem inside an organization to identify a problem. A consultant can act as a catalyst for change. No one likes change, especially corporate America. But sometimes change is needed, and a consultant may be brought in to implement the changes. A consultant provides much-needed objectivity. Who else is more qualified to identify a problem than a consultant? A good consultant provides an objective and fresh viewpoint. A consultant may be hired to do the "dirty work." Let's face it: No one wants to be the person who has to make cuts in the staff or to eliminate an entire division. An impartial outside consultant is the perfect person to handle such unpleasant tasks. A consultant can bring new life to an organization. At one time or another, most businesses need someone to administer "first aid" to get things rolling again; a consultant has good ideas. A consultant may be hired to influence other people. You may hire a consultant based on who they know.

If you would like to learn more about our services and consultation approach and how it would boost your company’s productivity, employee satisfaction and retention, or set you in the right direction towards career fulfillment and personal greatness, then please, give ArtSpectives a chance!

Are you starting a new program? New to evaluation? Join us to create or improve an existing logic model that will guide how you evaluate your program.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify barriers to conducting effective internal evaluations.
  • Revise or create a logic model that captures the essence of your organization.
  • Develop rubrics to measure essential--yet hard to quantify--outputs and outcomes. 

Description

This 2-hour workshop will support participants in developing evaluation tools that are participatory, embedded, and that measure what really matters. Participants will learn to avoid common pitfalls in conducting effective internal evaluations. They will create new (or improve on existing) logic models and rubrics.  

The logic model is a one-page description of a program or organization that addresses assumptions, external factors, resources, activities, outputs and outcome. The logic model provides a map for evaluation activities. Participants will also develop rubrics that describe different levels of performance, for the purpose of measuring outputs and outcomes that are essential to an organization, but cannot be easily quantified. A follow-up workshop will provide training on developing data collection tools.

Level

Audience

Executive directors, operations managers, and program managers

The Evaluation Lab has two programs:  a student fellowship that partners graduate students with nonprofits looking for hands-on support, and an annual Summer Institute that trains nonprofits in building internal evaluation capacity.  Melissa is also a faculty member in the UNM Economics Department.

Description

The training will provide an overview of Schedule A of Form 990 and 990-EZ, particularly the support tests for 509(a)(1) and 509(a)(2) organizations.
