However, impact measurement is not a cure-for-all. When should we measure impact and when should we not? Also, we should apply different approaches to different stages of a project/program. PIA (Prove, Improve, Account) approach might be useful in that regard. If so, What should we consider when apply TOC to impact measurement and evaluation in the real world context?

Review and Final Discussion

As we mentioned earlier, the impact measurement and evaluation process is critical for improving a project’s/program’s resource allocation, and improving the overall quality of the project itself.

However, impact measurement is not a silver bullet.

Please read ‘Ten Reasons Not to Measure Impact—and What to Do Instead’ and discuss when we should measure impact, and when we should not do so.

Also, we need different approaches for different stages of a project/program. The PIA (Prove, Improve, Account) approach might be useful at certain stages.

Please read the following articles, and then talk about what we should consider when we apply TOC to impact measurement and evaluation in real world contexts.

Hope you enjoyed this week. Have a wonderful day and see you next week!
