Defining and Measuring Impact
What changes do you want to see in the world? How do organisations know if they are realising their mission? Here we first look at defining impact before exploring approaches and tools to measure and evaluate impact.
Financing and Resourcing Impact
Finding funds is an important first step to achieving impact. You explore different types of funding available to purpose-driven organisations, debate their effectiveness and learn how to secure funding.
Given the enormity of the world’s problems, it’s important for impactful organisations to scale. You will learn about different tools and strategies that can enable scaling, and debate if and when they should be used.
The Impact Landscape
You explore the state of the sector: its challenges, opportunities and the different ways people create change on a local, national and global level. Within this landscape, you consider where you as an individual are best placed to create change.
We equip you with a range of approaches to deliver innovative and effective solutions. From traditional problem solving techniques to agile working and human centred design, you broaden your toolkit for tackling complex problems.
If you don’t have a good understanding of yourself, it’s much harder to lead others effectively. Here, you improve your self-awareness and ability to manage your time and energy effectively.
How do you lead a team through uncertainty, challenge, conflict or even opportunity? Here you learn how to create a strong and inclusive organisational culture, listen deeply, and develop others.
Once you’re equipped with tools for leading a team, we’ll look wider. From vision casting to community building, you learn how to mobilise people in society to join you in creating change.
