Center for System-wide Impact and Measurement

Over the past decade, there has been a shift in social service delivery from a more fragmented and “siloed” approach to an emphasis on service integration and organizational partnerships to advance common goals. This is perhaps expressed most clearly in the concept of collective impact, in which government, philanthropy, social service organizations, and others commit themselves to a common agenda for solving complex social problems. To support these efforts, the field of measurement and evaluation is also evolving, with increasing attention paid to shared measurement.

 

MJB’s Center for System-wide Impact and Measurement works to develop the theoretical and practical foundations for inter-organizational measurement and evaluation.  

Our research program for 2016 focuses on three major themes:   

·        Shared indicators and shared measurement  

·        Evaluating cross-sectoral initiatives  

·        Developing organizational strategies for measurement and evaluation
