Reviews are generally less complex and less outcome focused than evaluations. O’Brien Rich Research Group can undertake reviews to:

  • Provide information on whether a program is being implemented as planned and if any refinements or improvements are necessary – implementation reviews
  • Examine current policy to determine whether it is still relevant, or meeting stakeholder needs – policy reviews
  • Explore appropriate service delivery arrangements and provide sustainable options for consideration – service delivery reviews
  • Locate relevant literature and academic writings on a particular topic – literature reviews
  • Ensure that service standards are appropriate and being met by organisations - service standards reviews.


A good review should:

Focus on problem solving and demonstrate how to improve

Be comprehensive and timely

Align with what is known about good practice

Involve all relevant stakeholders

Explore the conditions and context, the opportunities and constraints.
