This 3.5 hour workshop facilitated by Kylie Hansen will focus on measurement of impact and outcomes specifically for an impact investments and mission driven businesses.
Measurement methods are highly variable, with a number of different frameworks and methodologies based on the impact and strategy of the investee or business, and the requirements of investors.
In the NFP sector, organisations typically pick and choose which frameworks that work best for them. However, this session explores investor needs such as consistency and the types of metrics that might apply to different mission-driven businesses and investments.
The workshop will provide an overview of different impact investment types and the different methodologies that suit those types, and examine some of the international frameworks that impact investors are using across their portfolios (for example, the Global Impact Investing Network’s IRIS, Social Return on Investment).
The workshop will also cover some of the issues related to measuring outcomes for impact investment, including forecasting, appropriate indicators, and issues in language and marketing.
Managers of organisations considering impact investments as well as executives of businesses exploring alignment of mission and purpose would benefit most from this workshop. This is a small, high-value, focus-group workshop limited to 12 participants.
