Markets for Good Selected Readings:
Making Sense of Data and Information in the Social Sector
We’d like to announce a new eBook, highlighting our first 15 months of conversation. This retrospective collection of selected readings from our site includes an introduction by Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in which he highlights the “continuing wave of efforts that will push our sector to achieve even greater impact.” Following Jeff’s introduction, the Markets for Good Collaboration Team recaps the first 15 months of the campaign, and how they expect Markets for Good to evolve going forward. The subsequent 17 posts and authors’ updates provide a range of perspectives on the most critical data-related challenges facing the social sector, and how these challenges can be addressed. Posts were chosen for their high readership, topic diversity, and thought leadership. The authors debate new and recurring hurdles in the social sector, like capacity and capital constraints; how qualitative data, including stories and beneficiary insights, can be incorporated into data-driven decision processes; and big-, medium-, and small-data management.Click here to download Selected Readings as a PDF (2920 downloads )
