Guide to Influence Matrix, a Tiny Tool

The influence matrix assists participants examine the impact or outcome of changes in their community and examine the causes for change. The tool assists participants to visualise and quantify the outcomes of change and their causes.

The tool is designed to use through group discussion. The influence of every project output (or external contribution) is examined by participants.

Tiny Tools were developed to allow communities to assess the change that happens around them. Tools facilitate structured reflection so communities can realise what change happened, come to understand what led to this change, become aware of how they can influence developments, and come to conclusions what they want to change in the short and medium term.
