Introduction to Social Impact Measurement – Free E-Book

29 04 2009

simWe are spending a lot of our time talking about measuring social impact at the moment and although most organisations agree that the current monitoring that they are doing doesn’t tell the full story of the impact they are having there is still a lot of confusion about what Social Impact actually is.

To help answer some of these questions and help organisations get started measuring their own social impact we have launched a new FREE e-book called Measuring Your Social Impact: A Practical Approach.

As part of the download process we are asking people to help us measure our own social impact – and in particular the impact our free e-book has on their understanding of social impact.

You can download your copy here.

Bev has also written a post on her blog – For More Than Profit – on Our Approach to Social Impact Measurement and how we believe that any organisation, whatever their size, can and should be measuring their social impact – so head over there and have a read of what we think about Social Impact Measurement.


Measuring Your Social Impact – A Practical Guide

7 04 2009

globe-people-city-globeHere at The Tool Factory we have been thinking a lot about measuring social impact in Third Sector organisations.

If we can provide proof of how we are changing people’s lives then funders will love it.

We are running half-day training courses on an Introduction to Social Impact for organisations who are interested in learning how to start measuring their social impact.

As part of that course we have also put together a free e-book that will introduce you to a practical approach to measuring your social impact in your organisation, without having to spend lots of money. There are plenty of practical examples and all of the terms are explained in detail.

We are just making the final finishing touches to the e-book which will be available from next week. If you would like us to send you a copy just drop us an email at
