Our understanding of value in society has changed and our metrics need to catch up.

This blog is for anyone looking to manage impact and better understand societal value.  That could be board member, an investor, a program manager or a policy maker.  This blog gathers together insights from working and training in the social impact measurement space across a broad range of sustainability issues.

I will breakdown key concepts in social impact methods and bring them alive with examples.  Social impact management sits neatly between research and action.  It enables change makers to prove the power of what they do and to improve it.  

It is not rocket science, in fact, most of the time it is common sense.  However it is a discipline so it is worth getting across the core principles.

I will also try to link social value thinking to what else is going on in the world.  Feel free to request additional subjects by reaching out to alison.joy.freeman[at]gmail.com.
