Developing a shared measurement system is essential to collective impact. Agreement on a common agenda is illusionary without agreement on the ways success will be measured and reported. Collecting data and measuring results consistently on a short list of indicators at the community level and across all participating organizations not only ensures that all efforts remain aligned, it also enables the participants to hold each other accountable and learn from each other’s successes and failures. (Kania and Kramer 2011)
Data gathering and shared measurement systems are key elements for collective impact initiatives to better understand and assess their work, but can be also very challenging to start and sustain.
In this webinar participants learn from other initiatives about their practices related to gathering and sharing data, and the impact it had on their outcomes.
