EvalStars works with organisations to review their performance and embed reflective practice using qualitative and quantitative data (financial and non-financial) into their ‘business-as-usual’. This adds value to an organisation’s performance in design, delivery, and reporting while making a positive impact in people’s lives.
EvalStars is a recently established Wellington-based company with expertise in results-focused governance, management, planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.

Our aim is to enhance organisations’ ability to demonstrate their achievements and strengthen their decision-making. We specialise in working at strategic and operational levels to build the capability of teams to systematically plan, measure, and report their results and to tell their performance story. We do this by collaboratively developing and using a practical evidenced-based approach to show the team’s contribution to the organisation’s strategic and/or operational outcomes and to gather evidence to inform strategic and operational decisions.
Our vision – Our organisational vision is to make a positive impact in communities and people’s lives by enhancing and strengthening organisations, programmes, and projects achievement.
