Insights and impact
Data is a precious and valuable asset that can sometimes be overlooked and undervalued. It can help you validate whether your idea for a solution is something that people want or need. And once you roll it out, it can help you understand if it’s making an impact. But what should you measure to understand if you are moving the dial? And if it is making a difference, how can you tell the story of the great work you and your organisation are doing?
It all starts with having the right data and being able to mine that data for insights. In fact, we’d argue data is critical to the success and sustainability of all social sector organisations. It informs who you serve, what you offer, how you do it and how you evaluate, measure and report on the impact of your work.
There are many elements to consider and our specialists can take the complexity out of it, no matter whether you’re scoping an idea, developing a theory of change or preparing to evaluate a program. They can help you put in place a robust and clear plan to ensure you are collecting key information in a way that allows you to mine the data and then share it with key stakeholders.
We have been most impressed by the calibre of Specialists from the Collective, and the Concierge support is great too.
