5 Essential Practices of Good Impact Measurement

As the urgency to invest in solutions to complex social issues grows, so too does the need to measure our efforts towards progress. Nonprofit, For-Profit, and Co-operative organizations alike face increasing pressure to demonstrate impact - whether that’s to meet funder, investor, or regulatory demands like ESG, or to demonstrate that you are contributing to community impact and the UN SDGs.

Good measurement enables you to prove and improve your impact as well as build compelling, data-supported impact stories that breathe life into social change movements.  

If you have questions like what to measure? How to measure it? How to analyze it? How to share it? How to incorporate it into daily practice? This workshop is for you. 

Join us for this 2.5-hour interactive workshop to get started or move further in your impact measurement and reporting journey. We’ll explore the Common Approach’s 5 Essential Practices of good impact measurement. These simple, commonly accepted practices “set a minimum standard for the “how” of impact measurement.” The five practices are: 

  • describe your intended change
  • use indicators (metrics)
  • collect useful information
  • gauge performance and impact, and 
  • communicate and use results

You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to do impact measurement well. Only $89 per person or $150 for two people to attend.
