What will this tool help me do?
Solutions that scale successfully hit the sweet spot between value, impact, and sustainability.
In the social impact sector, we tend to prioritise and measure impact but not think enough about ensuring that solutions are valuable and sustainable.
This tool helps you develop a few of the key metrics you need to track to ensure your solution is valued by users and can impact a lot of people sustainably. Using the Critical Metrics Calculator, you can work out some rough numbers for:
- The number of constituents in the target audience
- How many of them are reached and sign up
- How many complete the programme/intervention/solution and have the intended impact
- The high-level unit cost per person reached, engaged and impacted
This helps you define the future metrics you’ll need to hit in order to achieve your goal, and see how close you are to those metrics today. It is intended to complement the Sweet Spot for Scale Tool.
