Theo Clay shares some key impact management lessons from a recent peer learning event in Manchester.
The Impact Management Programme has given out grants to 40 charities, social enterprises and community businesses who want to improve the way they collect, analyse and use data to make decisions. These grantees are doing year-long projects and NPC facilitates regular webinars and events for the group to reflect on progress and shared challenges. Theo Clay, a Consultant at NPC, reflects on the key discussions at the latest event in Manchester.
On January 23rd 2019, 21 ventures and providers came to Manchester for the final peer network face-to-face event of the Impact Management Programme. The aim of the day was to discuss common obstacles in impact management, and different ways grantees have tried to overcome these. The day was split into four sessions, with four different speakers from the peer network. Below is a summary of the key points of discussion from each session.
