Free demo: SROI survey use

Posted by David Karemaker on Jul 4, 2017 3:05:07 PM

The demo gives you a 23-min walkthrough of how to work with surveys to gather data for your SROI analysis. We support a range of different research methods such as

  • collect prospective data with your target audience to underpin your SROI forecast
  • collect retrospective data to do a project evaluation
  • collect and automatically calculate the difference between two measurements for each individual: one before and one after your project
  • surveying only a sample of your participants or surveying all of them

Watch video

The SROI framework is built specifically to support your Social Return On Investment analysis and is currently the only tool accredited by ‘Social Value International’. It facilitates an established method that applies ‘social accounting principles’ such as attribution, drop-off and displacement effects. An SROI analysis helps you to forecast your social impact as well as to monitor and evaluate it by involving your stakeholders via the survey tool.  

Interested in learning more on SROI? You can download our Beginners Guide and/or Step 2 Step Guide or follow the SROI Practitioner training which we organise together with Social Value International on 12/13 September 2017 in Amsterdam. More info you can find here

If you wish to get a live demo of our product (via Skype) in which we can also demonstrate other impact management frameworks, you can register here.

Sinzer participates in the Impact Management Project facilitated by Bridges Impact+

Posted by Marlon van Dijk on Mar 2, 2017 1:30:05 PM

The Impact Management Project is a multi-stakeholder effort, supported by a consortium of thoughtful funders including Ford Foundation, DFID, Omidyar Network, Anthos, PGGM, BlackRock, Mars Inc. and PIMCO, facilitated by Bridges Impact+.

The objective of this project is to understand each other’s impact expectations to work together and agree on how best to measure and manage performance. Over 75 partners from different disciplines are currently involved in co-creating the convention, developing norms and positioning measurement approaches.

Sinzer has been asked to partake in this project and will share expertise in sessions about:

  • The impact we expect, based on the information we know (today!)
  • The information we need + how we collect and use it
  • The impact management cycle

Furthermore we have been asked to invite some of our clients from different parts of the value chain (charities, social enterprises, mission-led businesses, corporations, asset owners and investment managers) to partake in the user journey sessions.

Are you a client of Sinzer and interested to join this project? Download more information here (including dates and time slots when these sessions take place) and send them an e-mail.

Yes, I am interested to join this project!
