Policy Development and Evaluation 

Developing better public policy and services – by understanding what works and why. 

At Verian, we offer specialist policy formation, service design and evaluation consultancy services from our team of experts located around the world. We are expert methodologists and leading practitioners in public sector innovation.

Our approach 

Our policy formation and service design teams are always interdisciplinary by nature, bringing together:


In depth subject matter expertise

From health, to education and employment, from transport to migration, we bring our in-house subject experts, including those with wider international perspectives, and selected external partners.

Targeted evidence

Integrating primary and secondary data as appropriate, and for service re-design, baseline experience data. 

International expert teams

A broad toolkit of consultative methodologies, often drawing upon design thinking and customer journey mapping 
Workshop experts to ensure deep alignment with the client organisations’ priorities and needs 

A whole system approach, ensuring the end user is heard throughout 

Building capacity, by creating the design and implementation frameworks for future evaluations.  

Programme monitoring and evaluation  


We design and conduct evaluations rigorously and collaboratively to answer critical questions about what’s working and what’s not – and most importantly, why. We can integrate the expert use of behavioural science, systems thinking, adaptive learning and economic analysis to develop recommendations that improve public policy design, performance and importantly, value for money. 

Many of our consultants have lived experience working in government agencies. We speak the language of stakeholders and understand the systems in which they operate. We tailor the tools we use to each client’s needs and build effective reporting for decision makers. This ensures our clients can relate the evaluation story to the larger government or organisational agenda and have the resources and confidence to generate buy-in for implementing changes. 

We embrace working in the most challenging operating environments. Our teams also have significant experience in improving poor quality data systems and managing complex stakeholder negotiations to drive improved outcomes.  

Our programme evaluation division includes our specialist Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) team, who work internationally.
