Thinking intentionally about scale  by Aparna Bhasin

Scaling what works has increasingly become a catchphrase in the non-profit ecosystem. However, scaling what works emphasises the innovation rather than the impact that it creates. 

Join us for a webinar that explores strategies for scaling impact using a multi-dimensional lens. Lessons are from a research dissertation studying non-profits in India.

  • Recognising multiple, different dimensions of scale for non-profits 
  • Exploring different strategies that can be applied towards scale
