What we do
We can help you in different ways at the different stages of impact measurement, management and reporting. This includes:
- Developing or refining your Theory of Change for your organisation, a programme, key beneficiaries etc.
- Defining Key Performance Indicators and measurement tools
- Implementing online and offline platforms and tools to store and manage your impact data
- Data analysis and validation
- Strategic planning, helping you review your impact to make better decisions and improve your services
- Impact reporting
We have our own impact platform, which we can tailor to your needs and set up for you to easily manage your impact online.
For social investors and social investment funds, we help you plan for impact. We provide you with tools to guide your impact investment decision-making, as well as assess the impact of your investments.
Our approach is based on our best practice publications The Good Analyst and The Good Investor. We focus on building your capacity and skills, and helping you implement practical solutions that are appropriate for your organisation’s resources and time.
We will help you embed impact measurement practices within the core of your organisation, to ensure impact management becomes part of your strategy planning and enables you to grow your impact every year.
Why measure your impact
"Organisations that are capable of recognising their triumphs and failures are likely to be far more effective than those that aren’t really sure what they are achieving". The Good Analyst
Measuring social impact is critical for organisations to improve their services and expand their impact. When embedded into your organisation’s processes, impact measurement provides you with the tools to review your impact and your data and helps you make improvements and changes to your services to make them as impactful as possible.
It is also important for organisations who are looking to scale, raise investment, or win contracts. Organisations that use impact measurement can provide convincing evidence of the benefits of what they do, and are thereby empowered to make a stronger case to donors, funders, commissioners and investors. Over the long term, and given the highly competitive market that exists for social sector funding, impact measurement has become critical to an organisation’s ability to attract new capital.
Measuring and recording impact provides organisations with a means to communicate with their beneficiaries, thereby supporting efforts to improve awareness and expand outreach, to demonstrate what is achievable and to help beneficiaries understand and chart their own progress; and in the case of successful impact, to recognise and celebrate change.
