CANCELLED: Be a Lean Mean Data Machine

This event has been cancelled by the organizer!
Re-think how you measure and narrate impact through Boston+Acumen’s hands-on workshop on Lean Data!
Fast-moving social enterprises, strapped for cash and time, face a conundrum when it comes to measuring social performance. Traditional measurement tools, whether inherited from international development or impact investing, don’t make sense. They are either too costly because they were designed for large-scale aid projects or focus on typical business metrics that don’t get to the heart of impact.
Created from the ground up, Lean Data puts entrepreneurs, and their customers, first. It is a revolution in how social performance data is collected, analyzed and integrated into a company’s decision-making. By embedding measurement and data collection into a company’s core and using the right tools to rapidly gather information, social enterprises can gain clear insight into their social performance at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional measurement.
During the workshop you will:
– Develop an understanding of Acumen’s “Lean Data” approach
– See Lean Data in action by creating your own Lean Data Action Plan
– Work within groups to design your own data collection and measurement system using Lean Data tools and surveys
