Know your impact. Show your impact. Grow your impact.

Impact Measurement and Management

 

We help our partners create rigorous impact measurement and reporting systems to know, show, and grow their impact.

Stakeholders prioritize transparency from organizations in how their decisions and actions impact people and the planet. Sustainability and viability are increasingly tied to how organizations respond to these growing stakeholder demands where trust in the validity of measurement and reporting is key. The depth, clarity, and rigor required to earn that trust are a cornerstone of our work.

2. Impact Measurement Design

Develop an evidence-based framework for developing and implementing clear, impact-driven performance metrics to effectively and methodically measure the impact of a project.

3. Impact Reporting and Evaluation

Test and refine the developed metrics. Validate the designed impact measurement strategy to inform ongoing data collection and reporting across the organization and/or portfolio.

4. Impact Reporting

Quickly assess and report impact through our data visualization tools that amplify positive outcomes and highlight areas of opportunity to improve.
