For many social impact analysts, the purpose of analysing impact is to help organisations get better at making it. Internal decision makers such as senior management teams and boards should be a primary audience for impact analysis, but funders and external stakeholders can often overshadow them.
A common challenge for social impact analysts is to convince senior internal decision makers to support their work. Getting decision makers to use the impact data is often an even bigger challenge. How and why should you get internal buy-in on your work?
This seminar will touch on key discussions and case studies from those championing and implementing the use of impact data in internal decision making. Key questions will include:
- Are internal decision makers using impact data? How can we encourage the use of data and why?
- How can data be used in this context (e.g. monitoring progress, effectiveness, setting strategy, systems, tools and frameworks)
- Does how you measure, analyse and report impact data depend on the decision maker? And if so why?
