About this resource

This course is designed for social enterprises and nonprofits who are looking for an agile, effective and low-cost way to better understand their customers and assess social impact. It is not specifically designed for experienced monitoring and evaluation professionals – although they may find useful tips and suggestions, especially with respect to remote surveying techniques such as phone calls and SMS.

Learn How To:

  • Use Acumen's Lean Data framework as an alternative to the traditional "monitoring and evaluation" approach
  • Pinpoint data collection opportunities in your customer journey
  • Create a streamlined survey to understand why your product, service or program is meaningful to customers
  • Identify an appropriate technology to rapidly collect data
  • Run a Lean Data sprint within your own organisation
  • Present customer insights and recommendations to stakeholders

This course is free and 5-weeks long. The next edition starts on March 16 2021.
