What We Do
At Preva we're dedicated to helping organizations - in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors - achieve large scale social change. We are working to improve the quality and timeliness of measurement to enable better decisions for practitioners and investors. We do this by combining in-context strategic data planning with sophisticated analytics. This requires a shift from measurement for compliance to measurement for impact decisions; from data collection as a tax on practitioners to value-add for practitioners. These are fundamental shifts, not incremental, and require new methods. This is why we are excited for this opportunity and also why we positioned our services in the following way.
Strategic Data Analysis
We believe in strategies and programs built on evidence, including measurement and analytics. We help organizations make meaning from their existing data to ask smarter questions and inform strategic decisions. We collaborate with clients and partners to instrument program level plans, develop products to drive strategic objectives and orchestrate multiple party complex implementations. We team with innovative and leading partners who add critical contextual knowledge, reliable and valid program evaluations.
