To date, there is no measurable and actionable set of values that could realistically complement profit maximisation as a guiding objective. Organisations are still facing difficulties in measuring and managing their impact, despite all efforts, and consequently fail to maximise their value creation to society. Even when societal value is created, communicating this remains challenging.

To address these issues, Impact Institute has developed a set of development programmes. These programmes offer a range of practical tools, built on our proven methods, and learning experiences to equip professionals with the right knowledge and skills to measure impact, steer on impact, and develop future business strategies. Our trainings enable professionals to apply impact as a concept in their day-to-day lives and use it as a proposition differentiator in stakeholder engagements.


“Impact Institute’s method and tool allow us to not only measure our impact, but also to manage the value creation for our stakeholders. So we can keep improving our services and have real impact on people.”

Annemiek Dresen

Founder & Director

“We compared most of the frameworks  about impact measurement out there  and Impact Institute proved to be the  best solution, due to its rigor and its  solid, scientifically-proven and data-  driven method.”

Mikkel Larsen

Chief Sustainability Officer

Our programmes can be followed at the Impact District, in-company, and via online participation. No matter which trajectory you are participating in, we will ensure the best knowledge transfer by providing the most conducive learning environment. After the completion of any of our programmes, your knowledge and skills can be directly applied to address your organisation’s challenges.

During the course, you will learn from our experts’ experience in Impact Measurement. You will also interact with other peers from different organisations and learn from each other. Most importantly, you will discuss in a safe environment which allows participants to share their experiences.

Experiential Action Learning: You learn by real life cases and relate the learnings to their own (part of) the organisation while learning from our experts and peers. You will be given assignments during each programme, and your knowledge will be challenged at the end of each programme, which will mark the successful completion.

Collaborative Learning: For those enrolled in our open enrollment program (at the Impact District and online), you can get in-class exposure to our renowned global experts, interact with peers from other companies who face similar challenges and expand your network with fellow aspiring impact professionals. For those following our in-company programme, you can spend time with colleagues from across business units, facilitating internal collaboration.

A Safe Environment: A safe, confidential environment is created for candid sharing and the experimentation with impact measurement and management.
