Abstract [en]

This article presents a viable method to overcome the challenge of producing reliable cause-effect findings in impact evaluation. The Measuring Cluster Effects through Triangulation method (MCET) involves methodological triangulation. Three designs - shadow controls, generic controls, and process tracing - are combined to shed light on causality. When these three approaches are triangulated, cause-effect findings will be more reliable. The MCET combination is a feasible alternative when randomized controlled trials and matched controls are impossible or impracticable. It is also an alternative to using a single non-experimental design, particularly in situations where expenditure is great and the causality issue is pressing. In this article, the MCET approach is illustrated by information drawn from a set of evaluations performed on the activities of the Compare Foundation, a cluster organization in Sweden in the Information and Communication Technology sector. Regionally based in Karlstad, County Varmland, and founded in 2000, the Compare cluster organization has adapted the MCET to its own activities.
