Starting with a step-by-step introduction to the SROI process and theory, further developing an impact map- the heart of the SROI process - and exploring appropriate real life examples, elicited from course participants.

Why is SROI important?

The SROI framework helps measure change in ways that are relevant to the people or organizations that experience or contribute to it. 

It tells the story of how change is being created by measuring social, environmental and economic outcomes, and uses monetary values to represent them. This enables organizations to calculate cost-benefit ratios. SROI helps manage and communciate the social value a project creates in the form of a measurable number that can be understood by all relevant stakeholders. The SROI measurement also helps to increase the social value or impact the project creates. 


Participants who attend all sessions will be awarded a KPMG certificate of attendance.
