Transactional Impact is the process of engaging in a simple transaction in order to have, or participate in an attempt at positive impact.
Transformational Impact is the process of changing the way that you do things in to order to have, or participate in an attempt at positive impact.
Transactional impact is short term, while Transformational impact is long-term.
Transactional impact is easy to bolt onto someone’s life or organisation, while Transformational impact becomes a part of someone’s life or organisation.
There is often confusion between regular-transactions and transformation.
Transformational impact changes not only what you do, but how you do things.
Transactional impact is doing your job and then handing a cheque to an organisation.
Regular transactional impact is doing this on a regular or semi-regular basis.
Transformational impact is participating in impact through your job and using those same cheques to support that impact, and the transformations of others.
In transactional impact you are abdicating the responsibility of the ‘doing good’ to somewhere else, whereas in transformational impact you are becoming an active part of the ‘doing good’.
The difficulties in funding, long-term outcome generation and educating people on the real and pervasive causes of disadvantage are amplified by the NFP sectors insistence on promoting transactional impact as the best way for people to help.
Understanding the importance of long-term interventions, education regarding the real barriers to equality of opportunity and continuity of engagement are amplified by transformational impact management.
Rather than simply telling people that their transaction is changing the world, and that they should hand over the responsibility for improving the lives of others to us. We believe in transforming organisations and individuals into forces for contributing to the ongoing development of equality of opportunity for those in need. Partnerships rather than simple purchases.
Don’t let anyone tell you that there is no way to combine the work you do, the skills you have and the resources at your disposal into impact in real time, over the long term. Our transformational impact management strategies mean that the better you are at your job, the more good you can do, and the easier and more rewarding it is to do it in the long term. We think that’s pretty awesome.
