How we help manage and measure economic and social impact strategies.
Our integrated solutions enable organizations to think differently about community engagement and socio-economic impact by leveraging data science and analytics to develop economic inclusion strategies.
Supplier Diversity Maturity Matrix
The Supplier Diversity Maturity Matrix fosters a deeper understanding of supplier diversity initiatives, increasing transparency and understanding of impact among stakeholders and communities.
- Alignment of supplier diversity initiatives to key corporate commitments;
- Development of plans to improve strategic messaging;
- Development of milestones for strategic planning.
Supplier Diversity Assessment
The review encompasses eight (8) key dimensions to provide an assessment of an organization’s business diversity and sustainability policies, procedures, and current activities.
Our methodology provides a robust review of an organization’s strategy to contribute positively to its surrounding community and economy.
Supplier Diversity Analytics
Gain insights into the outcomes of your supplier diversity program. The Supplier Diversity Analytics engine interprets data to inform decision-making, assess performance, and derive actionable recommendations.
The solution combines analytic findings with dynamic visuals to reveal powerful new insights.
Business Diversity Performance Review
Complete framework implemented across three phases: (1) Assessment Phase; (2) Business Data Analytics Phase; (3) Strategy Phase.
The approach starts with assessing the program impact. Then, generated insights into the outcomes of the program help develop strategies for areas of improvement.
Smart Community Index (SCI)
The Smart Community Index (SCI) is a standardized measurement tool for defining and evaluating the success of smart technology initiatives being implemented within communities.
The SCI is evaluated based on the combination of:
(1) the Community Engagement Score (CES), a key metric that measures how community engagement is planned, implemented, deployed, and received across 10 interrelated factors including resource mobilization and participation, empowerment and ownership, diversity and inclusion, adaptability and localization, communication and coordination, planning and preparation, design and development, local capacity building, implementation and organization, and monitoring and evaluation. Score results indicate how community engagement is being integrated as a cross-cutting process that impacts program efficiency, effectiveness, community representation and empowerment; and
(2) the Technology Adoption Score (TAS), a key metric that measures how community, information, and technology are integrated in a smart ecosystem across 8 interrelated factors evaluating the successful adoption of smart technologies within communities.
Sustainability Logic Model (SLM)
The Sustainability Logic Model (SLM) helps organizations define success as they introduce new ESG metrics and sustainability initiatives, build roadmaps for more community partnerships and seek more equitable solutions in their ESG and sustainability programs.
Our framework to design and establish the SLM is driven by a set of domains and subdomains, which enables organizations to dynamically measure their sustainability, and in the long-term help advance their ESG performance and socio-economic impact. The SLM helps to clearly summarize and communicate “outputs” or “outcomes” that proxy for “impact” in a consistent, standardized way.
Through this process, organizations gain objective information about whether defined activities ultimately contribute to the intended impacts, and how applied metrics can be used to guide efforts to achieve a higher level of positive impacts.
We help you identify, define, and apply sets of metrics for consideration by stakeholders as a means of evaluating the success of sustainable programming.
