“Measuring social outcomes is a large and complex subject that is causing both significant concern and excitement across the sector.”
On 15 & 16 October delegates gathered in Melbourne for the Measuring Social Outcomes: From Framework to Implementation conference. The purpose was to discuss the challenges of measuring social outcomes, including resourcing and selecting and implementing a framework.
Ruth Knight has contributed her analysis of the event to Pro Bono News Australia. She shares her seven key thoughts from the conference, including that measuring social outcomes is important, must be an ongoing commitment, it should enable an organisation to be more innovative and that it may need to be a collaborative effort.
