Idaho GPA Chapter: Measuring Grant-Writing Success: A Risk-Weighted Approach
How do we measure grant writing success? Is it as simple as calculating our win ratio and declaring a certain percentage of wins to be success? Grants are often a barometer of organizational health. An outstanding grant writer at a struggling organization might have a lower win percentage. A grant consultant brought in to find and apply for new opportunities might have a lower success rate. Some proposals are riskier than others. To be fair, a grant writing success measurement framework should take risk into account. This presentation will examine one possible framework, and will examine strategies for implementation. Attendees will gain a deeper appreciation of how risk factors into grant success evaluation, and will be able to put that new appreciation into practice.
