This morning, I could inspire the participants of the Ashoka Impact Programme 2020 about how to scale impact. What a great group of social entrepreneurs who are crafting innovative circular models and impactful solutions to build a sustainable future!
I presented the preview of the legacy canvas, part of our book in publication “Leaving a Legacy”. With this tool, organisations can explore and combine different scaling strategies: scale up, scale deep, scale out and scale down. How great it was to hear from participants that bringing together these different strategies in a canvas is really helpful. “Having a canvas that shows out that even scaling down can be a wise way to increase your impact will help to convince stakeholders that it’s not all about capacity building” was a feedback I loved to hear.
Also curious about the different scaling strategies? Check my article that has been published by the European Social Innovation Academy
