Social Value UK (the organisation which runs the Global Value Exchange) is very pleased to welcome Scholten & Partners as an Organisational Member, one of the first consultancies in Europe to introduce SROI in 2001.
Based in Amsterdam, Scholten & Partners have authored many books on SROI, presented case studies and presentations all over the world and developed the ValueGame. Their focus is on improving the ValueGame and ‘perceived value’ on the whole as they believe the end-user is the most important stakeholder in social change. The ValueGame is a method for measuring the perceived value of social and environmental value of your activities to your target audience: your customer value. Cost savings only reflect a part of the value created by social enterprises and social investors. To create value for the end-user is often the primary objective of the investment, and should therefore be measured to capture the whole value created by your activities. The ValueGame can be used for both (social) market research and for performance measurement and valuation.
Peter Scholten, owner and manager, said, “We’re thrilled to join Social Value International. The network is a thriving and essential voice of the sector and we’re looking forward to being part of the national and international movement towards changing the way the world accounts for value.” From joining Social Value International they hope to build more interest and debate around perceived value.
In October, Scholten & Partners will be hosting a ValueGame training in Amsterdam, more details of which can be found here.
Please join us in welcoming Scholten & Partners to the Social Value community!
