Today can be the day you start to make a BIG impact
How to demonstrate impact in 5 easy steps

Friday, 2 November 2018 - 10.00am - 4.00pm

9.30am: Registration

This practical workshop is for information specialists and librarians who want to explore what it means to demonstrate impact to their users, stakeholders and wider networks. The facilitators will share their collective experience of demonstrating impact in their organisations and will showcase some of the impact tools available. Participants will be taken on a journey to communicate the impact of a project, activity or service from inception to completion. The session provides a mixture of activities that give participants the opportunity to have some hands-on experience of using some tools and work through an example project.

Bring an idea for a project, service or an activity that you would like to do. Examples could range from a project or piece of work that influenced a change in the wider organisation, involvement in a new training session or a core service that you’d like to demonstrate the value of. Ultimately, we want participants to return to work with something tangible showing how the service contributes to your organisation and give some ideas about how to share their work.

The session will be led by:

Tracey Pratchett, Knowledge & Library Services Manager, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Victoria Treadway, Library & Knowledge Service Lead, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

On completion of this session trainees will be able to:
1. Outline how new or completed projects have value to the organisation or wider sector
2. Draft a brief project plan outlining resources required, team and costs
3. Identify a range of evaluation methods with a view to demonstrating impact
4. Consider what demonstrating impact looks like
5. Use examples from others to disseminate how their service impacts on their organisation / wider sector
