Our Innovation Approach

In order to achieve breakthrough outcomes that can be scaled for population-level impact, we need a structured but flexible approach that facilitates program development, implementation, testing, evaluation, and fast-cycle iteration. The IDEAS Impact FrameworkTM provides that approach, drawing on existing research and development tools and applying them in new ways to set a higher bar for program development and evaluation.

The IDEAS Impact Framework was originally developed in partnership with the University of Oregon Center for Translational Science, and the University of Washington College of Education.
