THE HR&S DEFINITION OF IMPACT
HR&S defines Impact as Outcomes that have become sustainable over time and does not require backup from the programme. The Impact is quantitatively measurable as a result of our progress markers, and HR&S is accountable for the Impact. The Impact is measured at the time of closing the programme. In addition, HR&S measures, if possible, if the Impact remains one, two, five and even ten years after after the programme has closed.
A possible Impact is often a wide and qualitative statement, something that is desired and that may or may not happen as a consequence of our interaction, and often long after we have closed the programme. We are not accountable for the possible impact, and we can also not claim it as the goal that we strategically work towards achieving. If it actually happens, then we often do not have evidence to what extent it was caused by our programme.
Ambition: The need and ambitions as expressed by the local stakeholder.
Outcome Challenge: Challenges hindering the local stakeholder from reaching her/his ambitions.
Activity: Activities address the Outcome challenges and arranged by the Programme Management Partners (PP).
Output: The Outputs are quantified results from the Activities. The PP is in control over Outputs.
Outcome: Actions taken by local stakeholders as a result of the Activities.
