CAMPAIGN: CECP Insights Blog


I’ve had the pleasure of listening to hundreds of companies talk about their approach to measurement for six going on seven years at CECP. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve gotten blurry eyed when the conversation takes the complex turns measurement and evaluation (M&E) can make. CECP has been known for measurement since its founding, with our dataset starting back in 2001 and Giving in Numbers almost to its 15th anniversary.

While our companies’ questions drive CECP’s work more than anything, across our team we also keep a pulse on new product offerings or studies to find opportunities to play match-maker between a company challenge and another organization’s solution (if not ours).

Overall, some companies have success in their M&E approaches but the challenges still seem to drown out the stories of satisfaction. With that in mind, CECP will test new approaches to further support our companies in their measurement efforts. Join us on the journey (which has been feedback-driven throughout) by sharing your input.

Over the course of the next few months, follow our blog to hear more about these new approaches to improving measurement. At the highest-level, CECP’s Data Insights team helps companies collect, compare, evaluate, and share their data-driven insights. Our goals are to increase the use of measurement and data and help teams figure out their next step towards continuous improvement. Operations will lead, academics will follow.
