Basic and Applied Research
In effectuating its mission, Out4Good conducts both basic and applied research utilizing evidence-based analyses and produces reports and studies based on rigorous, systematic, and objective thought and procedures to obtain reliable and valid knowledge or data about activities, programs, and policies. This data must be adequate to test and to justify any final conclusions or recommendations for policy, programs, or projects that generate measurable social impact.
Studies and reports based on fact-based analysis of reliable evidence give policymakers confidence in their decisions; their policies and projects are better informed, more effective and less expensive than otherwise. Rigorous, evidence-based analysis helps secure project funding and other resources, and allows for greater accountability. It also informs risk assessment and program management, greatly reducing the chances of policy or project failure.
Achieving positive outcomes requires the capacity to put a designed program or policy into place. Therefore, Out4Good deliverables also set forth detailed implementation plans that are based on the existing, concrete realities faced by our stakeholders. Our plans are successful because our studies recognize that to be effective, any design process must intentionally be, from the beginning, a redesign process. Using solid metadata as the basis of our analysis allows us to generate models that can be easily replicated and scalable to accommodate differing environments. We quickly replicate successful outcomes.
Out4Good pairs with a wide range of globally renowned, socially-responsible strategic partners with diverse expertise. These relationships allow us to quickly produce specific, detailed implementation plans that draw on state-of-the-art practices and technologies. Having this range of existing and diverse strategic partnerships is another factor that allows us to replicate and scale models for fast-track outcomes.
