IQ Business have joined Social Value International as organisational members. At IQ Business, they believe they are redefining management consulting to be more responsive to the challenges clients face. Whether these challenges can be tackled by leveraging research from IQ Business and partners, assigning IQ teams to design and implement solutions, or deploying point expertise to fill a skills gap, they aim to ensure their clients overcome their business challenges. Their goal is to create a culture of accountability for social spend across business, government and NGO sectors. They believe this can be achieved through assessing, measuring and optimising social spend in order to understand and generate impact. They help their clients unlock their untapped potential, for all stakeholder groups, which serves as a catalyst for larger societal transformation.
The work of IQ Business is inclusive of SROI reports for their clients, who span sectors. Over the last three years they have been the measurement partner for the CEO SleepOut initiative in South Africa and are in the process of completing the SROI for their next event taking place in 2017. IQ Business, in partnership with IAOS and GIBS launched the first SROI training in South Africa in August 2013, and have also developed their own training, which is currently undergoing the SVI assurance process.
By joining SVI, IQ Business hope to collaborate with like-minded professionals in sharing experiences on the application of the SROI methodology, learn and share learnings, work towards accreditation of reports and raise their profile in Africa. Stephen Smith, Associate Partner at IQ Business says: “Joining Social Value International is not-negotiable for IQ Business. As the leading independent management consulting firm in Africa, we aim to not only measure the value added by our clients, but to also walk the road with them to help them optimise the value they create.”

About Social Value International
Social Value International is the global network focused on social impact and social value. Our members share a common goal: to change the way society accounts for value. All too often key decisions about resources and policies are made using a limited economic concept of value, which fails to consider important effects on people and the environment. As the gap between rich and poor increases and the effects of climate change become more apparent, our work has never been more urgent. Social Value International works with our members to embed core principles for social value measurement and analysis, to refine and share practice, and to build a powerful movement of like-minded people to influence policy. This pioneering community contains members from 45 countries, drawn from a huge range of different sectors and disciplines. Our goal at Social Value International is to support, connect, and represent our members through training, knowledge-sharing and networking. Social Value International is much more than a professional network. Together, we are building a movement for change.
