Introduction to Identifying Agency Impact

Evaluation links strategy to programs to effectiveness – and evaluation provides the information needed to communicate impact to donors. A solid approach to evaluation should articulate why you are doing what you do, what you do to achieve your mission, and how your work results in measurable change for your constituents.

Developed by Partnerships for Strategic Impact™, Strategic Impact Mapping brings logic modeling and theory of change together and concretely connects them to your vision and mission, what you do every day, and to the specific impact for your constituents. Strategic Impact Mapping meaningfully informs your evaluation process and your strategic planning.

In this session, Maryfrances Porter provides a useful introduction to Strategic Impact Mapping as an articulation of the impact you want to measure. You will make the very first steps in creating your own Strategic Impact Map. Through this workshop, you will learn to:

  • Align evaluation with your organizational vision and mission
  • Set measurable, organizational goals for programming
  • Demonstrate effort through measuring productivity
  • Communicate success through clarifying impact

Program Managers, development professionals, Executive Directors, and board members should find value in this training.
