The strategic plan centres on impact and outcomes

ECSECC’s impact statement expresses the overall social change and developmental impact that ECSECC will contribute to, in the context of the external, operating and policy environment outlined above. ECSECC’s Impact statement: To sustainably attain productive employment, prosperity and equity for all.


Outcomes express what ECSECC seeks to achieve over the strategy period in terms of ‘institutional and behavioural changes’ among the clients and beneficiaries of the entity’s work. Outcomes occur as a result of changes in the performance of the entity and completion of planned outputs.

Outcomes for the 2020-2025 period have been identified based on ECSECCs founding mandate, shareholder and stakeholder demands and the value proposition outlined above. Outcomes are also based on ongoing diagnostic analysis of the three intermediate impact areas outlined above.

For this strategy period, ECSECC will focus on three outcomes and six intermediate outcomes:

  • A developmental state that actively leads development through partnerships
    • Improved policy decision making through the provision of strategic advice.
    • Shared provincial development agenda through effective platforms for engagement
  • An inclusive economy that grows sustainably, creates decent jobs and is innovative
    • Effective support interventions that contribute to the structural transformation of the economy facilitated
  • A healthy, educated and productive workforce and citizenry
    • Improved education and skills supply and demand matching
    • Reduction in new HIV Infections

Outcomes evaluation

ECSECC’s impact on communities and the macro environment will be measured through the government, institutions, structures and businesses that are supported by ECSECC. For this period, ECSECC aims to measures its impact and outcomes in terms of:

  • The quality and relevance of the knowledge we generate to constituency decision makers.
  • The ability to create stakeholder compacts and bring parties together for joint action and the effectiveness of these compacts.
  • The relevance, quality, applicability and use of the advice we give to decision makers.
