About The Kaizen Company

The Kaizen Company (Kaizen) is an international development consulting firm and an incubator for innovative, scalable solutions that address emerging market challenges and opportunities.

USAID Jordan Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity Overview

The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity is designed to ensure USAID’s activities in Jordan achieve their intended results through monitoring and evaluation, strategic assessments, and USAID’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting approach (CLA). Kaizen helps USAID create a dynamic learning environment among development actors, focused on innovation, quality, and knowledge sharing. Through the Kaizen Accelerator, a rapid procurement mechanism, a cohort of Jordanian firms work with the Activity to successfully deliver activities while simultaneously strengthening their management and compliance systems. The Kaizen approach provides USAID with high-quality MEL services across its portfolio, builds the capacity of local Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) institutions, and ensure programs meaningfully incorporate local participation. The Activity team ensures program sustainability by building the technical and institutional capacity of one or more local firms that are capable of managing the follow-on MEL Activity in the future.
