Measuring Up

Since my first days studing NGOs and working with international organizations, I have wondered about appropriate metrics for measuring the "effectiveness" (whatever that might be) of social enterprises.

Recently, I came across a very interesting rubric from RISE. I like its double bottom line approach of financial and social assessment factors. It's also sufficiently straightforward to be broadly applicable yet sufficiently thorough to provide metrics that can be used to measure changes in performance over time.
