WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Over recent years there has been a tremendous upsurge in demand for social enterprises to provide more information about their social impact. For a social enterprise understanding your impact is key to becoming better at what you do and more effective.
Led by our expert measurement team, this workshop will take you through our four pillar approach to building a measurement framework—helping you decide what to measure, and which methodology to use. The training will show how to approach building this framework—not by biting off more than you can chew at an early stage but by enabling you to have a sensible and proportionate plan for collecting evidence that will be robust and of use to you and of interest to investors.
With a group size of no more than 15, the workshop will be interactive and hands-on. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The training will help you to:
- Understand why evidence of your impact is important
- Understand the terminology, concepts and definitions around impact measurement
- Develop a proof of concept—theory of change
- Be clear about the context of your intervention
- Start thinking about longer term outcomes and identify your short-term outcomes
- Explain what your do and the mechanism of your intervention
- Test you theory of change through collecting evidence
- Choose the right level of evidence
- Decide when to collect data and from whom, and how to sample
- Select or develop qualitative and quantitative tools
- Analyse and communicate your findings
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The training is an introductory session and assumes no prior knowledge. It is aimed at those who have no—or limited—experience of impact measurement, and is relevant for all social enterprises new to this area and looking for guidance.
WHO DELIVERS THE TRAINING?
The training is delivered by our consultants who are experts in working with social enterprises and charities of all shapes and sizes to develop robust and systematic methods for measuring the difference they make.
This training is based on our report NPC’s four pillar approach.
