EvalStars is a Wellington-based company with expertise in results-focused governance, management, planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. EvalStars provides its clients with an ELM Platform. The ELM Platform is an online platform that allows organisations to integrate their planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation activities and collect store, aggregate data to report on their performance. In early April 2017, EvalStars purchased Evaluation Consult, a business that has evolved over the last eight years offering expertise in evaluative management at strategic and operational levels in New Zealand and internationally
Our aim is to enhance organisations’ ability to demonstrate their achievements and strengthen their decision-making through innovative practice and the use of information technology. We specialise in working at strategic and operational levels to build the capability of teams and information technology systems to systematically plan, measure, and report organisations’ results. We do this by collaboratively developing and using the ELM Platform and 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.
