Guidelines for Good Impact Practice

Guidelines for Good Impact Practice

A set of guidelines developed by the Working Group on Impact Measurement, elevating current best practices. Convened by the Social Impact Investment Taskforce established under the UK’s presidency of the G8 in 2013, the Working Group collaborated with hundreds of industry professionals to illuminate trends and elicit tips for long-term impact measurement planning. The document provides a set of guidelines and leading questions to help advance impact measurement approaches.

"An effective impact framework outlines how specific metrics are used across the entire impact. [A guiding question is:] Have recognized impact/metrics languages (e.g., IRIS) and frameworks (e.g., GIIRS) been actively considered and applied where feasible?"
