To improve the scope and quality for social investment ventures and iniciatives, incorporating strategic design, impact evaluation and measurement, and social return on investment tools and frameworks.
Companies, social organizations and public institutions strategically investing in iniciatives and projects that bring significant, measurable and replicable social change.
There is a constant demand for professionalism from and for the social sector.
This demand mostly aims at strengthening the capacity of initiatives and social investment ventures face critical social issues in an integral, efficient, sustainable way, generating significant, measurable and replicable social change.
That is the reason why, ZIGLA Consulting provides technical support and consulting in the following areas:
01 / Social Investment Strategies and Knowledge Management
Before investing more, invest better.
Under this paradigm ZIGLA Consulting develops a strategic approach towards social investment, seeking an equilibrium between the investor's interests and expectations, and the needs and priorities of the communities.
The use of measurement tools, follow-up and evaluation is crucial in order to optimize the limited resources. Our idea is to improve efficiency and get results.
Some of the tools used by ZIGLA Consulting for the development of Social Investment Strategies are:
Training, Facilitation and Design Coaching
Expectation’s ranking and critical stakeholders determination
Analysis and construction of IRSI Matrix
Defining key indicators
Project’s risk analysis
Projects and organizations’ analysis and mapping
OSIP (Optimal Social Investment Point)
Identifying investment opportunities
Projects monitoring and evaluation
02 / Social Return on Investment
What can be measured, can be valued.
One of the biggest challenges of managing social initiatives is to explain and show their real impact on the community. This involves identifying and evaluating measurement tools objectively and their ability to build social value. What is the value of an education project? What is the benefit of reducing some diseases? What is the financial value of creating a new job?
A thorough social assessment of projects determines the degree of achievement vis a vis the expected results, its direct and indirect impact and quantification of social return on investment.
ZIGLA Consulting develops and implements a series of tools and metrics to quantify and monetize the socio-economic and environmental value of social ventures (SROI,BACO, etc.) By using these tools to measure the impact and return on investment in a social project we allow social invertors to make informative decisions:
Complete project’s impact quantification
Comparative analysis of project impact
Overall monetization of the project ($ value)
Improvement in the decision making process
Improvement in project management
03 / Social Sector Research and Analysis
ZIGLA Consulting believes in the value of knowledge and benefits of sharing it with clients and other key players. Therefore, they conduct surveys, as well as research on organizations and social investors in order to detect emerging trends, opportunities and challenges within the social sector.
This source of knowledge contributes in the first place to improve decision making processes within organizations, and also to “discover” new areas of academic research. Through its sector analysis, ZIGLA Consulting builds a bridge of knowledge that enables social investors to work closely with strategic organizations, social entrepreneurs and innovators, as well as sharing with social organizations new concerns, trends or strategies that guide social investment.
04 / Online Content Management
A good strategy for production and dissemination of online content can increase the impact of projects and social actions.
How to ensure that the learning from social projects reach as much people and organizations as possible? How can other organizations and individuals join social initiatives already underway in a coordinated way?
Dissemination of online content and interaction in social media are an excellent way to achieve these objectives.
Zigla Consulting develops strategies of producing and distributing online content to boost the impact of projects and social actions.
