A Brief on Contribution Analysis

The value of contribution analysis in policy work lies in its systematic approach to dealing with complex, causal problems. Partnering with the Center for Evaluation Innovation (CEI), we began by carefully reviewing all of the material to determine the ideal format and structure that would best support the content on display. Once we established a solid typographic hierarchy, and all of the “rules” governing page layout were firmly in place, we then created a series of simple illustrations for each chapter that appropriately captured the dynamic political context within which advocacy occurs—a place where advocates partner, or work in parallel, with others to advance a policy agenda and counter opposition.
