New Book Coming Out: Measuring the Impact of Volunteers

January 06, 2016 10:19 AM | Anonymous

Energize, Inc. is delighted to pre-announce the publication of Measuring the Impact of Volunteers: A Balanced and Strategic Approach written by a Canadian team of experienced leaders in volunteer management: Christine Burych, Alison Caird, Joanne Fine Schwebel, Michael Fliess, and Heather Hardie. The latest buzzword in volunteer management is "measurement" - and we need better measurement tools to demonstrate the impact of volunteers, not just to count their heads!

The authors provide ideas and tools to implement a balanced and strategic approach to measuring, promoting, and supporting the success of volunteer engagement in your organization. Their approach emphasizes that the assessment of and planning for volunteer engagement should align with the priorities of the organization and its clients' needs. For those familiar with the "balanced scorecard" measurement tool first developed by Kaplan and Norton in the 1990s, the book adapts those concepts, creating a unique Volunteer Resources Balanced Scorecard (VRBSc) to address the requirements of volunteer resources management. For those being introduced to the balanced scorecard method for the first time, the book provides a step-by-step overview of the process.

Measuring the Impact of Volunteers will be available in a few weeks. If you wish to be notified when it is ready for purchase, click the button below to sign up for a direct notice.
