7.0 Reporting

Developing a system of reporting is a critical component of the success of any social enterprise. Without accurate information, it is very difficult to know which activities and practices to continue and which parts of your operation you need to improve. There are many kinds of reports that can help you do this, and we discuss measurement and evaluation more generally in the Monitoring & Evaluation Toolkit. In this module, we discuss the value of metrics in general and then focus on commercially important management reports.
