The Business of Social Change™
Today, social issues have major economic consequences. Yet for all the billions of dollars being spent by governments, foundations and corporations, it's unclear whether we are just "doing good" or really solving social problems.
We don't know, because we typically don't measure the right things. And without the right data, we cannot improve strategies or allocate resources more efficiently. That's where Mission Measurement comes in.
Mission Measurement is a strategy consulting firm that helps clients to create value through social change. We work with those who are trying to change the world—leading corporations, public sector agencies, nonprofits and foundations—and empower them with data to solve social problems more efficiently.
Measure social impact
Create value through social innovation
What makes Mission Measurement unique is that we create new data for our clients. The challenges that most of our clients face is not that they need more data, it's that they need better data. We identify the high-value outcomes for our clients—both mission-related outcomes and market-related outcomes—and use primary and secondary research to measure leading indicators. In this way we can help our clients focus on the metrics that create the maximum social value, and innovate strategy accordingly.
For corporations, it's not just about doing good or about reputation, it's about value: What is your company's Social Value Proposition™ to consumers, customers and employees?
For nonprofits, it's not just about fundraising, it's about value: What is your organization's Social Value Proposition™ to donors, and what data will make them double their investment?
For the public sector, it's not just about performance management or accountability, it's about value: What is the cost-per-outcome and how do we get twice the outcomes for half the cost?
For foundations, it's not just about aggregating portfolio data it's about value: How can you create a social impact supply chain to reverse-engineer the impact you want?
We've forged a profoundly different approach to consulting around social change—one that blends impact evaluation with traditional market research and strategy consulting. And it is producing a profoundly different type of results for our clients: breakthrough social change and breakthrough financial returns.
How do we measure our success? We aim to double the impact of our clients, and to double their revenues.
