About

  • Do you want to measure your impact but don't know how to begin?
  • Do you want to measure performance but don't have the staff, time, or the budget?
  • Do you ever feel like you're wasting time, collecting data for funders, but see no benefit from it?
  • Does measurement jargon (e.g. control-groups, randomized control trials, regression analysis) send you running for cover?

If any of that sounds familiar, you've come to the right place! In this webinar, international performance management and strategy expert Liana Downey walks you through simple steps to take control and put you and your organization back in the driver's seat. Learn about the different kinds of measurement approaches and how you can identify which is right for you.

Liana discusses common roadblocks such as lack of budget, technology, trained staff, and how to overcome them. You'll learn the difference between outcomes, measures, as well as internal and external reporting, and six simple steps to develop a powerful measurement system to increase your impact and impress funders.
