From social impact initiatives to national health systems, the lasting impact of any project almost invariably relates to the quality of the initial design. At Montrose we provide a full range of design services to help our clients ensure not only cost effective and sustainable results, but also to embed sensible management solutions, world class technical inputs, and evidence based review.
We believe in combining high quality and targeted technical specialists with a strong national team, to ensure the projects are appropriate to an often fluid local context, sensitive to political economy pressures, and retain the highest level of technical inputs.
Our approaches provide a range of design services which include:
- Stakeholder engagement through key informant interviews, focus group discussions and online surveys – these aim to provide a breadth of contextual information, identify effective project entry points, and highlight areas of potential synergy with existing interventions;
- Logframe based results design, ensuring a technically robust and practical theory of change;
- Value for Money planning and economic scenario building from the onset, focusing not only on the economic factors around commercial budgeting, but also recommending longer term VfM management models to ensure effective delivery;
- Scoping studies to provide a range of feasible and costed technical options for the client’s review.
