We have a simple and effective way to help you achieve public impact
We understand how hard it is to break through complexity and create public impact. To make achieving public impact easier, we’ve developed the Public Impact Fundamentals, a framework to increase the chances of a policy or initiative being successful.
Legitimacy is the deep reservoir of support a government needs to be effective. It is influenced by the level of public confidence, stakeholder engagement and political commitment behind an initiative.
Policies differ in scope and scale but the quality of the policy is what matters. How can governments achieve this? By defining clear objectives, considering the suitable evidence and assessing feasibility.
Without action, a policy is just a plan. Turning an idea into impact requires good management and measurement mechanisms to be in place, as well as an alignment of interests of those actors required to make change happen. Only then will an idea become a reality.
We can help you apply the Fundamentals to achieve positive public impact
Those who work in the public sector have the power to improve the lives of people everywhere. We have extensive experience working with organisations, governments and universities around the world to help strengthen their public impact. We’re committed to working with organisations and individuals that share our values and believe in the positive power of governments.
Our tools, training resources, content, case studies, and events are all geared to helping you cut through complexity, get the answers you need and achieve positive outcomes for people everywhere.
Designing effective policies is tough and there’s a lot at stake if it goes wrong. We’ve worked with governments around the world to help cut through the complexity of creating public impact and make policy that creates the change intended.
Scaling up bold ideas to drive positive change is in our DNA. We help foundations, philanthropic and other not-for-profit organisations design and deliver innovative ideas at scale.
Public Policy Schools
Educating the policymakers of the future with practical ways to positively transform the lives of people around the world is vital. We’ve worked with public policy schools and universities to illustrate new ways to design and deliver effective policies now and for the long-term.
We’ve worked with more than fifty governments and their partners in twenty countries sharing lessons on how to break through the complexity and achieve positive public impact.
The Public Impact Fundamentals framework helped me understand why our programme was not having the impact we intended and identified key areas we needed to focus on going forward
