What is the SIAA Challenge?
The SIAA Challenge was created as a learning and professional development opportunity for Social Impact Analysts. It is a case competition-style event, designed to deepen our global conversation about methods and approaches to social impact measurement and reporting; to showcase great work, and to critically reflect on differences within professional practice.
2014 SIAA Challenge: Measurement with a message
The 2014 Challenge was an experiment in crafting a narrative from a sea of qualitative and quantitative data. Competitors were given the same real data from the same real charity and asked to create a comprehensive, concise and compelling assessment of a charity’s impact. Our aim was to understand how social impact analysts use data to effectively inform stakeholders about the charity’s performance. Watch this space for details about the SIAA Challenge 2015!
