ME Competence Center for Methodology & Design

The Competence Center for Methodology and Design assures the methodological quality of MEI's consultancy activities. To effectively, logically, and unambiguously address assignments, the Center promotes tailored, participatory, actionable, and solution-driven consultancy. It offers tools and designs for cohesive and systematic data collection and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) using qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method approaches. Among others, it specializes in the design, implementation, and analysis of surveys, focus groups, interviews, needs and impact assessments, and process evaluations on the basis of non-experimental, quasi-experimental, and experimental methodologies.

The Center also ensures knowledge retention, learning cycle implementation, and transfer of methodological lessons learned from one MEI assignment to the other.
