Exploring Literature on Collective Impact

Evaluation of Collective Impact as a whole, not merely evaluation of single interventions, remains a challenge. While the literature on evaluation of single interventions is abundant, evaluation of multiple interventions run by diverse organizations and stakeholders within a collective remains elusive.

We know little about how shared measurement differs from measuring outcomes of specific interventions within a collective impact project. Given this knowledge gap, we have embarked on a scoping review to explore global literature on diverse evaluation methods, frameworks, techniques, and approaches that countries and organizations have adopted for their collective impact initiatives, as well as the evidence on their success.

We are currently in the ‘title and abstract screening’ stage of the review and will updater as the review progresses.
