Measurement, Learning, & Improvement
Measurement, Learning, & Improvement (MLI) projects are focused on optimizing the performance of organizations and programs working to enable more people to achieve lifelong success. Root Cause helps partners collect, understand, and use data to deepen and expand their impact on people’s lives.
Our approach is centered on a commitment to continuous quality improvement. Using a variety of tools, we help partners assess and strengthen their capacity to ensure limited resources are being well utilized. Our team works with partners to identify and increase the use of evidence-based practices that increase the likelihood of better outcomes for people.
