TOOL | Compendium of Collective Impact Resources Part Five: Evaluating Collective Impact Efforts

Collective Impact, Tools

Collective Impact is a framework for addressing complex community dilemmas and is most effective when trying to move the needle at a population or systems change scale.  It is not a useful framework when the purpose of the collaborative effort is solely to deliver programmatic services or solutions.  One of the most important competencies you can develop to ensure your initiative has both short and long-term success is evaluation. 

This compendium will focus on key articles, tools, and resources which have been developed to assist Collective Impact practitioners to evaluate their community change efforts.
