Comparing performance with benchmarks is another way to assess the overall success of an intervention when compared to similar programs. Focus groups can also be conducted with project stakeholders to reveal any issues which may have hindered the progress of the project. They will also provide insight on what worked well, and why. These strategies can then potentially be used elsewhere.
Final, a cost/benefit analysis performed at the conclusion of every year provides an overview on whether funds have been used effectively or if changes need to be implemented. Taking all these steps will ensure that comprehensive evaluations are taking place on a regular basis which should give decision makers greater confidence when making changes or determining future funding opportunities for their health promotion/intervention initiatives.
