Publisher's Summary

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Book read by Microsoft Sam.

I read a lot of global health, investment, and economics books. One would think that one that hits on all of these would be a great book. If that person would be me, that person would be wrong. The book is tedious and painful to read oscillating between far overly basic to far too detailed. The fact that they treat all acronyms equal is frustrating. Most people reading something like this know what the DoD is. Few know what a csc is but when you read the book he will give an acronym one shot and then you either memorize it for the rest of the book or, well, good luck trying to get context. I got lost a lot in the book and when I picked up it felt like it was talking about something totally different. I would go back and I would lose concentration again, back and forth, I would try this 3-4 time and just resign to not knowing it. I listen to about 3 books a month and for the first time since I read a machine learning book(which actually read out sections of code) approximately 2 years ago, this will be the first one I bail on in the middle. I even managed to finish on liberty by John Stuart mills without falling off. This one didn’t have enough redeeming factors for me to even finish it. Perhaps with a different reader it would be better, but it feels a lot like the content was poor as well as the reading. This is my first negative review on audible, so I hope that speaks volumes about the book if nothing else does.
