Design and conduct practical impact evaluations of training programs and other change and performance improvement initiatives – from short cycle innovation “sprints” to multi-month global learning programs!
Our rapid impact evaluation approach updates the highly regarded Success Case Method (SCM) to evaluate and accelerate the impact of strategic initiatives.
Learn directly from the originator and thought leader of the SCM, Professor Robert O. Brinkerhoff, and evaluation scholar, Dr. Daniela Schroeter. Both completed dozens of impact studies for such organizations as International Red Cross and Red Crescent, World Bank, World Meteorology Organization, Cargill, Kellogg Foundation, Merck, Ford Motor, Fannie Mae, Stanford University, INSEAD, and many more leading global companies, agencies, and foundations.
Change-program leaders, HR, learning and development professionals, project managers, performance consultants, instructional designers, and others who are responsible for driving results from performance improvement and change initiatives.

To support your implementation of impact studies, the Certification includes unlimited access to a digital library of SCM resources pertinent to shape and support all steps of an impact study. This includes job aids, checklists, example report formats and templates, example surveys, interview protocols, MP4 audio examples of interviews, and so forth. The certification learning experience and performance support tools enable graduates to conduct SCM impact studies: identifying impact evaluation opportunities and benefits, planning, and implementing SCM impact studies, and preparing actionable reports with defensible conclusions and recommendations. BEI will be available for follow-up and individualized consultation and coaching if needed, provided at reduced rates for certification graduates.
The instructional portion of the certification is a 100% virtual immersion program, delivered on the award-winning Promote digital learning experience platform (LxP). Participants will learn from individual self-paced module assignments interspersed before, between, and after the three weekly 3-hour synchronous interactive workshops.
Participants can expect to dedicate approximately two (2) hours of independent self-paced work before the first live workshop, and the same level of engagement in between workshops 1 and 2, and 2 and 3. A capstone assignment is expected to take about three (3) hours of independent work after the third workshop in which participants have three weeks to complete capstone assignments and submit for personal feedback, to earn their badge and certificate.
Answer: The “Success Case Evaluation Method”(R) is a registered service mark of Advantage Performance Group and BTS, Inc. It is a derivation of the SCM.
Answer: Yes, though you will need access to technical expertise for some of the tasks in a SCM impact study, such as survey design, data analysis, data display, and so forth. In our experience, access to such skills is very available, and many studies we have conducted over the years included use of “hired hands”.
Answer: The three live sessions are the heart of the Certification and the learning activities are intended to reinforce learning and application. If your schedule forbids you to participate, then this program is not for you. On the other hand, we do know that occasional unexpected commitments arise that may interfere with participating fully in a particular session. For this reason, all live sessions will be recorded for people who wish to revisit them or fill in a missed portion.
Answer: No, you do not. Anyone with a few years of experience in a training or performance improvement or other organizational change initiative should be able to fully master and benefit from the program.
