Measuring the Networked Nonprofit

Books, Measurement

If you work in social media or PR for that matter, and you are concerned about measurement, then KD Paine is already high on your list of must go to sources.    I’ve been following her work for at least five years and had the honor of facilitating a SXSW Panel called “Social Media, Nonprofit, and ROI Poetry Slam” where she was a participant.   Not only did she wear a Tiara, but she shared her measurement insights in rhyme.

I haven’t yet formally announced that I’ve been working on a book project with KD Paine to bring her Measure What Matters to the social good sector.   It’s about how Networked Nonprofits can use data to drive social change.     My work this year as Visiting Scholar at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation has been focused on testing frameworks and principles for the book and collecting stories.

Does your nonprofit have an amazing social media measurement success (or failure) story?   Let me know in the comments, you could be featured in the book.

  5. Hello Beth,

    Silicon Halton was founded in 2009 in order to great a bottom up, member driven grass roots community in Halton Region in Ontario, Canada. We’ve grown to a membership of 590 members, have had 26 meetups and now have three P2P groups running for CEOs, Solopreneurs and Software Professionals.

    This community is funded by enthusiasm, a willingness to help others learn, grow and be successful. To date we’ve not asked nor wanted a dime. Instead, we’ve focused on making it sustainable based on interest, engagement and opportunities to connect.

    We would be honoured and humbled to be featured in your book. Of greater interest to me personally is what you learn and share in your book. When can I pre-order?

  7. Woah this blog is wonderful i like studying your articles. Stay up the good paintings! You know, many people are searching around for this information, you can help them greatly.

  8. Wonderful! A timely conversation as we try and try to capture relevant data measuring outcomes in order to analyze results for our QI QA. Note I say “try and try”. For some of us in nonprofit, the challenge is just getting the data into useful affordable tools that work. I so appreciate having the data to help inform us. However, we continue to struggle with the means to put the data someplace where we can extrat it for meaningful useful. Having done quite a few consumer surveys, we found one of the most meaningful results was out of a focus group. Talking to people turned out to be really good!
