The Impact Management Project (IMP) is an
unprecedented opportunity to reach consensus on
how we measure and therefore manage impact.

AVPN is a Strategic Partner of the IMP

The Impact Management Project (IMP) is a forum for building global consensus
on how to measure, report, compare and improve impact performance.

The IMP convenes a Practitioner Community of over 2,000 organisations to debate and find consensus on good impact measurement and management, and share best practices.

It also facilitates the IMP Structured Network – an unprecedented collaboration of organisations that, through their specific and complementary expertise, are coordinating efforts to provide complete standards for impact measurement, management and reporting.

The five dimensions to measure impact

After a series of consultations with its Practitioner Community, the IMP reached consensus that impact can be deconstructed into five dimensions: What, Who, How Much, Contribution and Risk.

Collecting data for each dimension enables enterprises, and their investors, to assess and manage their impact in a consistent and comparable manner, and then set goals against one or more dimensions to improve their impact.
