If you’re a leader you know the feeling. You’ve been executing a strategy, implementing a program, or just performing business as usual and yet you have no idea how effective you are. You have an intuition you’re moving in the right direction but you really have no idea. For nonprofit leaders the feeling can be intensified since you don’t have a profit statement grounding you in reality.
Next week I’ll be doing a FREE 30 minutes webinar introduction to measurement & evaluation. M&E is all about looking, understanding, and maximizing impact. The impact of your programming. The impact of your strategy. The impact of your decisions.
The webinar will be a great introduction to some of the basic concepts in M&E and you will leave with some tools to help bring back to your team. We will be looking at:
- Creating a Theory of Change
- The role of M&E in strategic decision making
- What data you should be focusing on
Space is extremely limited so if you are interested click here to register. The webinar will run from 12-12:30 CST on Thursday, March 8th.
