Topics covered

Day One focuses on organisational readiness, starting with an assessment of what strengths your organisation already has. We then consider issues of organisational culture, links between outcome measurement and strategy, the language of outcomes measurement, the fit between outcomes measurement and evaluation, leadership, stakeholder engagement, outcomes measurement frameworks, and ethics. Participants in the program get a chance to have dialogue with experienced practitioners from all sectors engaged in social purpose activity.

Day Two is all about tools for outcome measurement including program logic, qualitative and quantitative methods, data analysis, outcomes reporting, communication and learning. We finish Day Two with all participants creating an action list to ignite outcome measurement in their organisation.

Testimonials from previous participants

I left the [workshop] with a plan of realistic things to do to begin implementing outcomes measurement which makes [outcomes measurement] a lot more tangible and achievable.

I feel much more confident in my capacity to drive the direction of outcomes measurement in my organisation… I also feel that I have made some worthwhile connections and would be keen to maintain these as peer support.

I now have a ‘roadmap’ of how to achieve my objectives in terms of outcomes measurement for my organisation, as well as fantastic resources in the workbook and booklet provided.

As I am new to outcomes measurement it gave me a clear understanding of the methodologies, issues and benefits. I feel more confident that I can be involved in conversations about outcomes measurements and an advocate in my organisation.
