If you are trying to do good in the world (as opposed to just making money), how do you know if you’re having an impact? How do you measure and manage that good?
The recent Global Social Venture Competition culminated with a full-day symposium on Social Entrepreneurship. Sara Olsen, founding partner of SVT Group and a leading practitioner of impact management, led a workshop on social impact assessment at the symposium. Candace Taylor, director of Corporate Strategy and Sustainability at Wal-Mart and co-founder of Urban Oasis Development discussed her work as a case study example.
