We believe that investments during the design phase of the project cycle are fundamental to a program’s success. Casual Design’s approach to program design begins with a review of existing literature to design a theory of change that is based on evidence.  We then work closely with program managers to design an intervention that aligns both with the organization’s strengths and international best practices to increase likelihood of success while maximizing impact.

Causal Design provides a range of flexible services ranging from reviews of a partner’s program portfolio, to designing pilot programs to be rigorously evaluated, to complete design of large-scale development programs.  Throughout the design process we will utilize a range of tools including qualitative means of assessing appropriateness and cost-benefit analysis while we draw from our experience with the rules and regulations of the major development donors.

Pilot -> Test -> Scale -> Test -> Share and Replicate
