Do terms like logic model, outputs, outcomes and indicators stress you out? You are not alone. Outcome measurement can be a daunting task. However, in the age of information technology and accountability, all organizations must be able to demonstrate success by providing real data backed up by accepted measurement techniques. Fortunately, measuring outcome does not have to be complicated. In this highly interactive session, we will use familiar metaphors and real life examples. Detailed information regarding the specific roles of a board in an organization’s prospects, funders and staff are outlined.
Topics to be discussed:
• Develop practical tools for collecting information about an organization’s impact
• Map out the relationship between a program’s actions and intended outcome
• Avoid common pitfalls and stay focused on what really matters
• Make learning from and sharing results second nature
Who should attend:
Executive directors, program leaders, development professionals.
