Using Agile project management to measure project’s impact - Session I

Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


The webinar is useful for the people interested to demonstrate the changes in the real life following their project’s intervention, to measure its impact. It is rare for the impact to be fully understood, or correctly, anticipated in the program-planning phase. Quite often this learning builds up during the implementation, based on multiple variables (stakeholders interaction and learning, positive developments in project’s environment, synergy with other economic, social, or policy initiatives, etc.). Being able to understand when, and how, to approach impact measurement can make the difference between a successful project and a not very successful one.
The first session will present three case studies, how, and when we succeeded to measure the impact:

  • Measurement platform build at the project start, impact measurement initiated mid-way – technology program
  • Specific activities and their impact measurement initiated mid-way – agriculture/economic development program
  • Relevant data collection for impact measurement done after project’s end - microfinance services

We will discuss the similarities in those approaches, and what and when we did, in order to be able to measure the impact. It is not rare to see projects’ stakeholders do not understand projects’ metrics, and sometime communicating those directly would not have the expected effect. Processing impact data to be able to use a friendlier language, easy to understand, is one of the way to avoid such challenges. We will present our experience in doing this.
