Social organizations/enterprises are increasingly challenged to measure their societal impact. We believe impact measurement is important, in particular as a strategic management tool.

Organisations should go beyond measuring their outputs – and should measure what these outputs mean for their stakeholders and how they change their surrounding world.

We support organizations and enterprises to elaborate their theory of change, clarify their impact areas, validate their impact with their stakeholders, design impact measurement systems and we provide action-oriented recommendations to maximize impact.Our approach is tailored to the specificities of each organizations.

 

Our social impact philosophy

An impact-focused measurement approach enables an organization to mobilize its resources efficiently and transparently for activities that deliver value to beneficiaries.

1. Strategy of entreprise

Direct your resources to<ard activities that lead to outputs with the biggest social impact, i.e. with real added value for your customers and beneficiaries

2. Performance of operations

Monitor also the non-financial performance of your operations, identify gaps with targets, and take remedial measures

3. Motivation of employees

Clarify to all employees in all departments how each and everybody's activity ultimately contributes to the social impact of the entreprise

4. Transparency to financiers

Respond to the demands from your financiers for a transparent, explicit and solid story about your social goals and achievements

5. Accountability to beneficiaries

Signal to beneficiaries that you want to engage with them about their expectations and subsequently be held accountable for delivery
