2.    Evaluation Capabilities

Ramboll Management Consulting is one of Europe's largest providers of independent evaluations. Annually, we carry out approximately 300 evaluations for national, regional, and local governments, foundations, the European Commission and European Parliament.

About 200 experts are primarily engaged in evaluation projects. To ensure consistent quality throughout the organization we have developed an Evaluation Capability Development Program. The program ensures that experts are trained rigorously in evaluation methodology and consultancy. The program consists of three certified tiers of expertise: evaluation practitioners, evaluation experts, and thought leaders. To become certified experts must meet a number of criteria. The certification is administered by one of the company's deputy directors.
