The Impact Management Skills Training is intended for those who seek to enhance their ability to generate positive outcomes for people and systems. Participants will improve their ability to get and use insights from their work to maximize positive impact.
During the one-day training we will present frameworks and examples, then work through their application using real field experience and participant-driven exercises and case studies of relevance to participants.
Participants will benefit both from international third-party standards relevant to impact management, including the Impact Management Project's 5 dimensions of impact and investor matrix, Social Value International's Social Value Principles, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, as well as from the trainers’ world-class, hands-on experience in impact management.
