Measuring and managing impact: A field experiment

Investors and firms face uncertainty over how to measure and manage impact, an uncertainty that introduces severe challenges when trying to evaluate the growth of firms in low-income countries across both financial and impact metrics. This project aims to be a large-scale causal examination of impact management and measurement (IMM) practices in Low Income Countries (LICs). The project will take advantage of a rich dataset on the workforce, financials, and business details of revenue-generating SGBs. It will further collect data on the IMM and other management practices to estimate its causal effect on various firm-level outcomes. The study will contribute to the literature on business training and management practices by developing and testing a unique training programme, focused on measuring and managing the firms’ non-financial impact on their stakeholders.
