The Social Profit Handbook : The Essential Guide to Setting Goals, Assessing Outcomes, and Achieving Success for Mission-Driven Organizations Paperback / softback

Description

How to Articulate and Assess What Success Looks Like The Social Profit Handbook offers those who lead, govern, and support mission-driven organizations and businesses new ways to assess their impact in order to improve future work rather than merely judge past performance. For-profit institutions measure their success primarily by monetary gains.

But nonprofit institutions are different; they aim for social profit.

How do you measure the success of these social profit institutions, where missions are focused on the well-being of people, place, and planet?

Drawing upon decades of leadership in schools and the foundation and nonprofit worlds, author David Grant offers strategies--from creating mission time to planning backwards to constructing qualitative assessment rubrics--that help organizations take assessment back into their own hands, and improve their work as a result.

His insights, illustrated by numerous case studies, make this book a unique organizational development tool for a wide range of nonprofit organizations, as well as emerging mission-based social venture businesses, such as low-profit corporations and B Corps. The Social Profit Handbook presentsassessment and evaluation not as ends in themselves but as the path toward achieving what matters most in the social sector.

The result: more benefits to society and stronger, more unified, more effective organizations prepared to make the world a better place.
