Starting with impact measurement

Course modules

The course is structured around 3 chapters and 9 lessons and introduces a set of practices and tools that every organisation can implement to establish robust impact measurement foundations.

In this Chapter, you will take a step back to understand some of the main terms in the world of impact measurement. Then with your understanding of impact made clear, we will dive into exploring when you would and would not choose to measure your impact. Once you've deemed impact measurement right for you, then we'll take an overview of the minimum standard of impact measurement i.e. the Common Foundations, and how they relate to renowned frameworks (UNSDGs, IRIS+, SROI, etc.)

In this Chapter, you will explore each of the 5 essential practices of the Common Foundations, and identify how they can support your organisation. We will introduce case study examples and insights from experienced entrepreneurs to inspire and inform you about key challenges and best-practices.

In this Chapter, we will dive a bit deeper into the practice of Impact Measurement communication, and discuss ways to avoid common pitfalls and challenges. Next, we will explore the ways that technology can help both the sector and your individual organisation. To conclude, we will take a look at getting your organisation ready for impact measurement practice, with a data-for-decision-making culture.
