Better Next Measurement Framework
The Better Next Measurement Framework is designed for corporate social impact professionals.
Your team can use this modern framework to
improve results, reduce inequities, and increase efficient use of everyone's time
Better Next has put its extraordinary measurement expertise into a NEW framework available to all corporate social impact professionals. Teams that apply the framework will improve results, reduce inequities, and increase efficient use of everyone's time.
Measurement is part of our systems. Therefore, we have a responsibility to think about whether or not measurement has exacerbated or reduced systemic inequities. With this in mind, the framework offers a practical approach to the operations of drawing insights from data and a human-centered approach to how measurement decisions affect people and communities.

"Improving measurement is a notoriously sticky challenge. When I first saw the framework I saw a possibility for corporate leaders to truly make forward progress."

“We started by listening to how our partners track their own impact, then leveraged Carmen’s expertise to evolve our measurement methods smartly balancing what our team, Board and partners sought to learn from the data and about our impact and results.”

"I highly recommend Carmen…she is gifted in her measurement work and she is an even better person. In short, she is a winner"
Scott Gillenwater, NRG,
former Manager PositiveNRG
"Working on measurement was always on our mind but hard for our team to act on because of limited bandwidth. It's helpful how this framework focuses teams on specific measurement improvements."
Better Next is available to support teams that prefer not to apply
the framework themselves.
Packages can include facilitation, implementation, or both.
The typical term covers a full year's data cycle. A sensible, customized amount of hours are determined for the specific deliverables each leader/team needs.
