Social Value International have published a new Supplementary Guidance document that accompanies “A Guide to Social Return on Investment (2012) and focuses on Principle 2.
“Understanding change is a crucial part of the SROI process which underpins the rest of the framework. By arriving at well-defined changes, the steps that come next; measurement, data collection, duration, valuation and assessing deadweight, will be based on a solid foundation.”
The aim of the guidance is to help you know how to collect the information you need about ‘changes’ and how to analyse this information in order to produce a set of well-defined outcomes. Understanding what changes is a fundamental building block for any attempt to measure and maximise social value. This guidance is essential for anyone looking to maximise value and increase well-being, equality, and environmental stability.
