The Problem with SROI

The Problem with SROIExcerpt from SVT-On-ImpactFew terms evoke such a passionate response in the impact management field as “social return on investment” or “SROI.” It’s not so much the idea itself that sparks debate, but the varying interpretations of how the term should be translated into practice. Perhaps in part the tension comes from conflating the generic concept of social return with conventional (financial) ROI or with…See More

The Coolest Toy in the World

Excerpt from SVT-On-Impact on Skoll's Social EdgeImagine a big, 3-dimensional, digital globe, on which any nonprofit or business in the world could map its operations worldwide. Each company’s shareholders, or the company itself, could enter data estimating how much money the company is investing and where it’s being spent.Nonprofits could visualize where the needs for their services are, and what impact they, or others, are having on…See More

Meetings. Conferences. Dinners. Gatherings. Scheduling. Airlines. Hotels. Expenses. Such is life on the road.



Why do we do this? What draws us to go far out of our way to convene face to face? Is it the thrill of travel? The exotic locations? Meeting friends and colleagues in person?

Posted on April 10, 2009 at 8:00pm 2 Comments

The world’s leaders have convened the world’s top economists and financial engineers to come up with a solution to the global economic crisis.
