The GIIN, Getting Started with IRIS IRIS is your free, online catalog for selecting performance metrics. In this guide, we’ll first cover all the basics, like how IRIS works (and how it will help you do your job). Then we’ll get into the more hands-on details, like how to choose metrics for your IRIS-based performance measurement program. Keep in mind, however, that even though selecting metrics is core to developing an impact measurement program, impact measurement doesn’t start and stop there. In this guide, you’ll learn: How IRIS works How to select metrics that matter to you How to avoid common mistakes

Change management Change management is an approach to transitioning individuals, teams, and organizations to a desired future state.[1] In a project management context, change management may refer to a project management process wherein changes to the scope of a project are formally introduced and approved.[2][3] History[edit] 1960s[edit] Everett Rogers wrote the book Diffusion of Innovations in 1962. There would be five editions of the book through 2003, during which time the statistical analysis of how people adopt new ideas and technology would be documented over 5000 times. The scientific study of hybrid corn seed adoption led to the commonly known groupings of types of people: Innovators, Early Adopters, Early Majority, Late Majority and Laggards.

L'Atelier IdF, portail Au même titre qu'il existe des outils de mesure de la performance financière pour les entreprises classiques, la mise en place d'outils de mesure de la performance sociale peut s'avérer pertinente. L'évaluation de l'impact social des initiatives à finalité sociale semble devenue nécessaire dans un contexte où l'État et les financeurs publics et privés sont de plus en plus en demande de ce type d'indicateur, par le tarissement des fonds publics à destination des organisations d'intérêt général pour les premiers, par la recherche d'un investissement socialement « rentable » pour les seconds. Dans ce contexte, et compte tenu de la disparité des outils internes d'évaluation de la plupart des structures de l'économie sociale et solidaire, sont apparues plusieurs méthodes visant à uniformiser les outils et indicateurs de mesure et à mettre en place des échelles d'évaluation. L'objectif de cette démarche consiste alors à trouver parmi ces méthodes celle qui est la plus adaptée.

4 Principles For Creating Change, And 4 Barriers That Make It Harder Many people now are struggling to make change; to drive social or environmental impact whether they are social entrepreneurs or people working from within organizations to make a difference. In this piece, we wanted to focus on thinking about how communities of change makers can thrive. It’s not enough for change making to be the sole remit of a handful of do-gooders or NGOs. By highlighting some of the barriers and core principles that are vital to the success of a world in which everyone is a change maker, we hope to begin to mainstream the art of change making and destroy the social entrepreneur’s monopoly on social change. Barrier 1: Experts As Idols

J-PAL (Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab) J-PAL, Laboratoire d'action contre la pauvreté, a été créé en 2003 au département d'économie du MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Depuis, il s'est développé en réseau mondial de professeurs unis par leur utilisation de l'évaluation aléatoire comme moyen de répondre à des questions critiques pour la lutte contre la pauvreté. La mission de J-PAL est de réduire la pauvreté en faisant en sorte que les politiques soient fondées sur des preuves scientifiques. J-PAL cherche à atteindre cet objectif :

5 Characteristics of a Change Agent cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo shared by visualpanic (change agents) – People who act as catalysts for change… In my work through school and organization visits, I have been fascinated to see the correlation between the speed of change and an individual who is “leading” the charge. The schools that have someone (or a group of people) helping to push the boundaries of what can be done in schools seem to move a lot quicker with a larger amount of “buy-in” through the process. As Malcom Gladwell describes in his book, “The Tipping Point“, he states: Positive Planet, "Facts and figures" Positive Planet bases its methodology of project evaluation on the 5 criteria of the DAC (Development Assistance Committee) of the OECD: Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability. Positive Planet therefore commits to developing its M&E – to justify the trust of its public and private sponsors – by maintaining clear and transparent presentations of the authentic results of its projects. The M&E enables Positive Planet to ensure detailed controls, measuring impact and capitalizing on acquired experiences in the different lines of work, shared between our network experts. The sometimes fastidious and always rigorous evaluations, which are codified by procedures and norms, give a fair indication of the Positive Planet commitment on the ground.

Changement Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le changement désigne le passage d'un état à un autre. L'on parlera, selon la nature, la durée et l'intensité de ce passage, d'évolution, de révolution, de transformation, de métamorphose, de modification, de mutation (ie transformation profonde et durable)... Il s'exerce dans des domaines très divers et à des niveaux très divers. Il faut distinguer le changement endogène dû à des causes internes (par exemple; les révolutions politiques), et le changement exogène dû à des causes externes (par exemple, la révolution du téléphone mobile).

Revue Tracés (2011), La Méthode d’évaluation aléatoire : apports et limites 1 Je remercie Luc Behaghel pour son avis sur une première version de cet article. 2 Pour une présentation très complète mais plus technique, voir Duflo et al. (2007). 1L’usage de la méthode aléatoire dans le cadre de l’évaluation des politiques publiques se développe aujourd’hui plus que jamais1. La France est l’un des pays où cette méthode a connu un essort aussi vif que récent, sous l’impulsion notamment du haut-commissariat aux Solidarités actives et à la Jeunesse. Précisons notamment que cette méthode n’est pas nouvelle, elle a d’abord été introduite par les sciences médicales et dans l’évaluation des médicaments. Aujourd’hui, aucun nouveau médicament n’est mis sur le marché sans être d’abord éprouvé par un dispositif d’évaluation aléatoire.

Theory of Change There has been increasing interest around the world in the role that inclusive businesses, which engage and benefit the global poor, can play in the fight against the problems of poverty. However, disappointingly few of these have achieved the scale required to make a significant difference. An analysis of over 400 such firms in Africa showed that a mere 13% of them had begun to scale. Cerise, réseau d’échange en microfinance Theory of Change: A Collaborative Tool? ? Social Edge We all have a whole boatload of different theories of change: change happens when the heart is deeply moved (people feel the injustice of racism) or when law demands it (Lyndon B. Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act in 1964), change happens better when you are seduced into it than when you are threatened into it, or vice versa, there are views that say it takes a hero (Martin Luther King) or that heroes are irrelevant (the tides of history theory) — dozens of opinions and points of view. And then there is The Theory of Change.

Social Value UK, SROI Change: 19 Key Essays on How the Internet Is Changing Our Lives Change: 19 Key Essays on How the Internet Is Changing Our Lives, is the sixth issue of BBVA’s annual series devoted to explore the key issues of our time. This year, our chosen theme is the Internet, the single most powerful vector of change in recent history. In the words of Arthur C Clarke, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” The swiftness and reach of the changes wrought by the Internet indeed have a touch of magic about them. As a tool available to a reasonably wide public, the Internet is only twenty years old, but it is already the fundamental catalyst of the broadest based and fastest technological revolution in history.
