Impact Compass Interactive Tool
The impact compass is a quick and easy way to gauge an organization's impact using one's own assessment of its performance on six dimensions.
The impact compass tool helps individuals conceptualize impact and compare the relative potential for impact of different jobs, programs, investments or donations in the context of limited access to impact studies and insider information.
To use the tool, first enter a company or opportunity name and make sure that none of the "zeroing factors" apply. Then, choose values for each of the six dimensions of impact. Use the tooltips for more information on the dimensions. To learn more about how to use this tool, download the Impact Compass white paper.
