We tend to focus on measuring and reporting when we think about impact. However, we often overlook the importance of people, systems and processes in enabling us to collect and use data effectively.
This seminar will outline methods for developing more agile strategies for programmes and organisations.
Are you an organisation with a mission to tackle large and complex social issues? This workshop is aimed at organisations wanting to think big in their theory of change: to influence lasting social change in a complex area.
A theory of change process encourages us to reflect on our aims and plans, to discuss them with others and to make them explicit. We see this process as the foundation of charity strategy, evaluation and communication.
Understanding your impact and sharing what you learn is key to the voluntary sector becoming more effective. In this one day training workshop we go through what you should be measuring and why, and how to use this data.
Campaigning is fundamental to the role we play in representing and advocating for the people we serve, and achieving lasting social change. Discuss how charities can understand the impact of these new ways of organising and campaigning.
This Leading Impact seminar will explore the barriers faced by people trying to influence systems change, showcase real examples of systems change at the frontline and discuss what kind of strategies and leadership are needed to embed systems change approaches.
Numbers are important, but alone are not enough—you need personal anecdotes to give them colour and meaning, and qualitative research to understand for example how change has been achieved.
Charities are increasingly developing digital services to better connect with their communities, save money and increase their impact. But how can charities make sure that the digital services they offer are having an impact?
The road to increased efficiency is often perceived as a journey where data and its collection feel like an obstacle rather than a compass for navigating through the maze of service design decisions. But it does not have to be this way.
Done well, co-design can unlock positive outcomes for participants, organisations and communities. Designing services and strategies with people rather than to people can build solutions that better address their needs.
In the first of our Social Impact for Business series of events, we’ll be focusing specifically on developing effective strategies for impact. Later in the series we’ll be exploring best practice approaches to measuring, reporting and communicating impact.
