The world is beset with enormous problems. And as a nonprofit, NGO, foundation, impact investor, or socially responsible company, your organization is on a mission to solve them. But what exactly should you do? And how will you know whether it’s working? Too many people assume that good intentions will result in meaningful actions and leave it at that. But thanks to Marc Epstein and Kristi Yuthas, social impact can now be evaluated with the same kind of precision achieved for any other organizational function. Based on years of research and analysis of field studies from around the globe, Epstein and Yuthas offer a five-step process that will help you gain clarity about the impacts that matter most to you and will provide you with methods to measure and improve them. They outline a systematic approach to deciding what resources you should invest, what problem you should address, and which activities and organizations you should support. Once you’ve made those decisions, you can use their tools, frameworks, and metrics to define exactly what success looks like, even for goals like reducing global warming or poverty that are extremely difficult to measure. Then they show you how to use that data to further develop and increase your social impact. Epstein and Yuthas personally interviewed leaders at over sixty different organizations for this book and include examples from nearly a hundred more. This is unquestionably the most complete, practical, and thoroughly researched guide to taking a rigorous, data-driven approach to expanding the good you do in the world.

With Contributions by Capers Jones, Howard Rubin, David Garmus, Lawrence Putnam, and Elizabeth Clark The accurate, quantitative measurement of software quality and process performance is rapidly becoming an essential part of competition in the ever-tightening software marketplace. Software metrics provide insights into productivity and quality gains from improvements in skill, technology, and development methodology. An effective metrics program helps practitioners assemble the best team, select the optimal development methodology, and enhance the quality of a software product. In short, metrics enable software developers to pursue proven, successful strategies, and to change course when metrics point to less-than-optimum quality or productivity. Written by the world's leading authorities in the field, IT Measurement showcases state-of-the-art in software metrics and provides the practical knowledge that practitioners need in order to take full advantage of software metrics technology. The book's collected articles offer important perspectives on the role of metrics in the development process, and show how metrics directly enhance software quality and output efficiency. The book explores several vital areas, including Function Point Analysis, project estimation and management, outsourcing, statistical process control, and more. These articles range from basic theory to the sophisticated application of metrics. Specific topics covered include: The expanding role of function point metrics Work output measurement for IT work units The use of metrics for tracking Enhanced estimation with metrics Metrics in outsourcing Standardization of SLOC The application of SPC to performance management Functional metrics in B2B e-commerce project success Enlightening and pragmatic, IT Measurement will help you gain a deeper understanding of software metrics and the ability to apply concrete measures in order to objectively evaluate and more finely shape your software development program. 020174158XB02212002
