The Compass: Your Guide to Social Impact Measurement

Status: Completed November 2014

The Compass is your guide to navigating social outcomes and impact measurement. This guide is for everyone working towards the creation of positive social impact in Australia and who wants to know if they are making a difference.
What isn’t it? It’s not a set of frameworks, or a textbook, or a jargon-packed treatise on outcomes measurement.

At the Centre for Social Impact we recognise that traversing measurement literature, guides, tools and approaches can be challenging. If you are interested in understanding whether, and how, social change has occurred and you are taking
steps to measure (that is, “assess the importance, effect or value” of what you do) and communicate social impact, this guide is for you. The Compass explores and explains key topics, concepts, questions and principles of outcomes measurement.
