Course introduction

How do you know if your organisation is actually making an impact? To answer this question, you will need to make a plan to measure your social and environmental performance and execute on that plan.

Our Impact Measurement online course, which is offered in partnership with the University of Richmond and UNC Charlotte, will teach you how to develop a strategy for creating an impact, how to execute on this plan, and how to disseminate and use the data obtained from your measurement plan.

You will explore the wide range of terms used to describe impact measurement, learn reasons why organisations measure their impact, and the project life cycle for impact measurement. You will also discover different impact methodologies and learn how to select appropriate metrics and indicators for your project. Lastly, you will explore how to report on your impact performance.
