Training: Building Sustainable Impact

May 29th - June 2nd

Tempelhofer Ufer 21, 10963 Berlin, Germany

The concepts of change and learning are central in an ever-changing fast-paced world. NGOs, foundations and other civil society organisations supporting complex social development face the challenge of implementing programmes and projects that are equally innovative and sustainable in order to stay relevant.

While constantly driving for change organisations need a strong strategic compass and the will to continuously learn and develop competences to stay on track and achieve the envisaged results. This twofold objective is a call for organisations to develop and learn in a systematic and sustained way.

5 Day Training:

Day 1: Change and Learning
Day 2: From Strategy to Project Development
Day 3: From Project Development to Monitoring & Evaluation
Day 4: From M&E to Organisational Learning
Day 5: From Organisational Development to Strategy

How do we support organisations on this journey to innovation and sustainable impact?

Building Sustainable Impact is an intensive five-day professional development training.

Focusing on impact the training links strategy to programme and project development and evaluation to organisational learning. Due to its strategic emphasis, the training is ideal for programme managers and directors of organisations striving to achieve social change as well as organisational development (OD) practicioners and those responsible for the fields of monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

Take Aways

Directors and Programme Managers will familiarize themselves with tools to develop and implement a strategic (overview) perspective that ensures long term effectiveness, adaptability and pertinence of their organisations and programmes. M&E Practitioners will gain knowledge on how to link project- and programme related impact chains and indicators with the strategic level of the organisation and will find out how to embed M&E systems in an organisational learning framework. OD Practitioners will get acquainted with strategic M&E practices and how to apply them to create more coherence between organisational structures and project implementation.

Approach

Due to the interactive learning approach of the training, participants will benefit from practical concepts & tools and open professional exchange in this training. SOCIUS has close to two decades of experience in working with international NGOs, both, in the field of organisational change as well as in the evaluation of development projects and funding programmes. Supporting organisations to effect sustainable impact, i.e. changing the world for the better today but also being healthy and strong in this effort tomorrow, is a vital part of our mission.
