Who write the rules of Impact Measurement and Management?
We have been working on health for all, no poverty, and inequality for many years. We also agree that we have not been able to achieve them to our satisfaction. Despite some progress, we need to do much more to create a more equitable society and a sustainable planet.
What's the cause of the problem?
A system that generates inequality and resists change. The solution is a system where the people who experience impact can hold those who create it to account for their performance.
Let stakeholders hold the key to Impact Measurement and Management. We need to change our governance and processes to demand stakeholder level accountability and update reporting requirements to reflect the same.
So, how can we scale our efforts?
1) How can we understand our program and stakeholders well?
2) How can we make sure to derive our impact learning (Outcomes) from our stakeholders?
3) Can we make operational decisions based on outcome learning?
4) Can we maximize positive impacts and minimize the negative impact on people and the planet?
We are honored in welcoming Jeremy Nicholls for an insightful conversation.
