Making It Count: A Social Enterprise Guide for Accounting for Value: Online Guide Review

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


The phrases "social impact" and "social value" (and the measurement thereof) seem to appear everywhere these days -from political and policy statements, to broadsheets and their online brethren, and, of course, in academic discourse. The terms are particularly relevant to those working in social business who will all-at one time or another -have likely grappled with notions of demonstrating to stakeholders, to funders, potential investors, or simply themselves, that they are actually 'making a difference' and wondering how best to approach this. At the same time a profusion of arguments exist over which approach from the 150 or so tools available (at last count according to McKinsey & Co) is best to help third sector organisations.
