RK Evaluation + Strategies

TESTIMONIALS

“Robin and her firm worked with us to track a rapidly evolving project over the course of two years. She joined us after one year of the three-year undertaking had elapsed, was quick to understand the ongoing dynamics and complexities, and rapidly proposed an evaluation approach that has effectively served us, our partners and our funder. The hallmark of Robin’s work is attention to data, evidence and context, which are collected with great sensitivity to both facts and nuance. Her reports are crisp, well organized, and without fail completed on schedule. The combination of all these characteristics resulted in an accurate picture of where we stood, what worked, what needed improvement, and what had been overlooked completely. As scientists, we value accuracy, impartiality and rigor. In Robin we have found a partner on whom we can rely to provide independently gathered information and analysis to improve our performance. I enthusiastically recommend her work, approach and professionalism without reservation.”

“Robin Kane provided outstanding M&E guidance and service on two projects I directed at Physicians for Human Rights: one was a DC-based immigration detention advocacy project, and the other was a Middle East-based human rights training and documentation project. Although the two projects were completely different, Robin was able to conceptualize and develop M&E plans and tools that captured the critical data we needed. Her timely turnaround of data reporting at critical junctures allowed me to make adjustments to programmatic plans in time to improve outcomes, and the funders were thrilled with her comprehensive reports.”

“Robin Kane has completed evaluations of three major initiatives for the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP). In each instance, she conducted timely, comprehensive analyses of the issues. The results are rich and informative documents, which provide a 360-degree perspective of our work. The NAPNAP Board has been impressed with the depth and breadth of the materials presented, which will be very useful to move forward as we strive to meet our mission of improving the health of children and families.”

“Robin did a superlative job anticipating the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the group she was hired to train, and channeling that diversity to the benefit of everyone. She is friendly, personal, and professional from first introduction through to the final deliverable. Robin is a dynamic speaker, extremely well-organized, and has a terrific sense of humor. I recommend Robin without hesitation.”

Grace Jones
Program Director Congressional Hunger Center

“Robin has helped us tremendously in managing complex projects through her leadership in developing program plans that are realistic and logical. Robin has also done a brilliant job in writing and editing large-scale documents, as well as media advisories/press releases. She worked with a very diverse group of people across the U.S and consistently established great relationships which resulted in the best possible results. I highly recommend Robin for organizational development/program planning/strategic planning activities, as well as for managing time-sensitive projects.”
