Another Source on Nonprofit Performance Metrics

Yesterday I blogged about a joint project between The Urban Institute and Social Solutions to launch a web portal with information to help nonprofits improve performance.  Today, Root Cause, a nonprofit advisory organization, announced a new book recommending that nonprofits adapt for-profit data-driven performance measures to help judge and improve nonprofits' impact.  According to this story in Reuters, the book (entitled Building a Performance Measurement System: Using Data to Accelerate Social Impact) looks at the performance measurement system commonly used by the private sector to increase profitability, and modifies it "for a simplified, step-by-step customized system to help nonprofits improve operations and increase social impact."

A free PDF of the book and more information is available for download from the Root Cause web site.
