Consulting firm Mission Measurement aims to help companies, foundations, and governments track their efforts to effect social change and make them better at it. "There's a big gap in the market in how to figure out whether we're getting any value from the money we're spending on social change," says founder Jason Saul, 40. Started in 2005, Mission Measurement counts among its clients Wal-Mart (WMT) and USAID. Saul says Mission Measurement's consultants use data to measure outcomes and then use the information to improve the programs. "Let's get the data and figure out what works, and then use that data to inform our strategy," he says.
