Systematic study and analysis of collected evidences and data points with a linked and inclusive perspective to support the policy level decision making is a specialty of Fiinovation. The impact-evaluation practice focuses on learning, analysis and is future action oriented.
Our approach of embedding common indicators of impact assessment and economic valuation in quantitative and qualitative methods are been benchmarked across the sector. Through Impact Assessment, we at Fiinovation try to identify:
- The future consequences and value additions of a current or proposed action initiatives.
- The projects, programmes and policies economical viability, socially equability and environmental sustainability.
- The impacts (both intended and unintended) of the interventions, measuring the magnitude of the impacts and determining the causal factors underlying the impacts.
Clients use our assessments as a guide for developing interventions. Our impact assessment establishes a counter factual (i.e. what would have happened in the absence of the project) by creating a valid control group who do not receive project services but who are similar project participants with observable and unobservable characteristics.

Fiinovation designed and outlined descriptive, tailor-made indicators to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the program and its efficacy in relationship to the original expectations in terms of their:
- Relevance to expected outcomes
- Effectiveness in dealing with identified problems of achieving expected results
- Efficiency of resource usage in the process as well as efficiency of the program, project or policy in addressing the identified problems
- Effectiveness of the project strategy as felt by the implementing organization and its suitability to achieve the intended outcomes
- Detailed report of the project activities and policy in terms of achieving the program outcomes
