Our Approach to Organisational Evaluation & Impact Assessment

The Bright Ideas Approach

Evidences Impact

Generating robust evidence of the impact your organisation creates will help you to prove what you do works, and improve what you do so that you can make the leap from good to great.

Enhances Performance

By taking time to understand your organisational processes and how you structure your operations, we support you to improve efficiency, build organisational systems that work for your staff team and work with you to put in place the right resources and systems to power team performance.

Contributes to the Big Picture

Good research should also align with the your broader financial and organisational strategies. This should mean that your research, evaluation and impact assessment contributes to your organisation’s long term sustainability.

Where Does This Approach Come From?

Our approach was developed working with organisations who have a social mission. We see research, evaluation and impact assessment as integral to helping organisations learn, and also leverage their learning to ensure that regardless of where you're starting from, greater clarity, refinement and improvement can be achieved by applying the Bright Ideas approach.

Our model captures how research should work for the organisation through evidencing impact, enhancing performance and contributing to the big picture, integrating these agendas into a single framework.

As well as informing the consultancy projects we take on with clients, the model also provides the theoretical framework for our Leading for Impact training range.
