The Social Value Management Certificate is looking at the standard of an organizations practice in managing the social value that is created (and destroyed) through its activities.  This is not only about reporting social value, it is about gathering data, analyzing it, and making better informed decisions to improve your stakeholders lives through creating the most social value that you can with your resources.   It does not provide proof or a statement that your organization or program is creating a particular amount of social value, more that you are putting practice in place to continuously improve the amount of value you are creating. The Social Value Management Certificate is an organizational pathway and there should be an explicit expectation when undertaking this journey that decision making, and organizational activities will change throughout.

The Social Value Management Certificate can be awarded to an organization, a department or franchise, or a specific program/project being run by an organization.

The Social Value Management Certificate has three levels, This is an organizational development pathway, and so applicants must progress through each level consecutively.
