Our world's challenges are too great and too complex for any one organization or government to address on its own. But solutions to these challenges do exist—and will be found through new partnerships bringing together the public, private, and philanthropic sectors. These partnerships must deliver major public programs and projects that more effectively serve society through innovative, inclusive, and long-lasting solutions. In Social Value Investing, Howard W. Buffett and William B. Eimicke present a new management framework for developing and measuring the success of such partnerships and provide tools to help maximize collaborative efficiency and positive social impact. Social Value Investing offers practical insights for any private sector CEO, public sector administrator, or nonprofit or foundation manager hoping to build successful cross-sector partnerships. It also provides a five-point framework inspired by value investing—one of history's most successful investment paradigms—applicable to a wide range of programs and activities. Drawing on lessons and observations developed from a broad selection of collaborations, Buffett and Eimicke create a blueprint for effective, sustainable partnerships to serve the public interest.
