Measuring and Improving Social Impacts

Nonprofit organizations talk a lot about the work they do and number of lives affected, but are people really better off? The pressure to answer this question has never been greater, yet the confusing array of metrics and tools make it hard to get meaningful, actionable information. To address the problem, authors Marc J. Epstein & Kristi Yuthas, interviewed measurement experts at foundations, nonprofits, and social enterprises. Their findings are summarized in a five-step process that will help nonprofit executives to gain clarity about the impacts that matter most and provide them with a roadmap for measuring and improving them.
