Impact Management Support

At Economic Change we are committed to offering our customers the very best support.
Basic RGB

We make four key commitments to our customers:

  1. We offer clients a support service for as long as they need.
  2. We help clients create an organisational wide impact framework.
  3. We will provide insight and knowledge about what is possible.
  4. We can capacity build the internal skills of staff to the point of self-management.

Our Impact Management Support Packages

After 17 years of experience we believe a successful impact management strategy includes:

  • An Impact Measurement Framework to clearly articulate what, why, how and when you are measuring impact.
  • Efficient and effective Monitoring Tools and System to collect and analyse data
  • A Change Management Strategy to get everyone on board

We help individuals to apply these principle using our acclaimed Step by Step approach, a proven formula that has supported over 450 people over the last 7 years.  We have a number of packages that train and support individuals to implement the three core elements of an impact management strategy. If a package doesn’t suit, we can look to create a bespoke one just for you.

“It was really good to have someone external to the organisation to reinforce the message. It was also useful to think through the bigger picture of our social value, competitive advantage and to link our impact to our values.” Liz Richardson, Monitoring and Evaluation Development Officer, YMCA Derbyshire

“Clearly delivered, jargon free and pinned at the right level. A terrifically helpful and useful workshop! Miranda Kemp, Marketing & Communications Manager, Sussex Community Foundation.

“A great course in a reduced timeframe, with knowledgeable trainer. Theory of change – going through a clear step by step process that I can apply. Considering short to long outcomes not just start and end. Thinking about baseline and theory of change models was really helpful.” Emma Saunders, Programme Manager, Scouts
