Theory of Change: Impactful results that change lives

By: Isabel Chávez, Marketing, Communication and Public Relations Specialist at FUNDES 

What cannot be measured cannot be improved. Nothing is more accurate than this phrase when it comes to a methodology for the effective implementation of projects that guarantees the establishment and fulfillment of indicators that produce impact and lasting results over time.

But what are the impact results? The impact of a project is its significant contribution to the achievement of the set goal or purpose and is characterized by a change or a series of lasting changes over time.

To achieve this impact and change lives through implementing projects, some methods guide the development of these projects to ensure effective results. One of these methods that have proven itself worldwide is the theory of change. It shows the execution of plans through a graphic representation that follows a causal logic and considers the goals to be achieved and the specific path to get there. 

In the case of FUNDES, we use the theory of change as a tool to better understand the relationship between stakeholder expectations, inputs, activities, outcomes, and the changes we expect to see after the project is implemented. We take our partners’ expectations as a methodological framework for planning activities, establishing evaluation measures, and measuring methodology to identify intended or unintended changes that occurred during the project’s development. We communicate the results achieved clearly and promptly to our partners.

For José Rafael Trejos, project coordinator at FUNDES, “the theory of change model helps us have a more orderly and comprehensive planning and execution process. It also helps us be aware of where we should focus our attention to perceive and demonstrate the positive changes that our projects bring about.”

In this way, FUNDES provides focus, clarity, precision, and the ability to design, execute, and evaluate projects that impact micro, small, and medium enterprises in Latin America. In this way, we improve our value proposition and assure our partners of changes that transform lives.
