manage social Performance (MSP)
A community and online resources for social performance specialists.
If you’ve ever tried to manage social performance all by yourself you know the days are too short and the tasks are too long. Besides, like all behaviours, social performance is stronger with collective action. That’s why you’re here.
Our Key Areas Of Focus
We don’t have to make it up. We’re committed to grounding our theory in real experience, good and bad.
Experience, observation, analysis and documentation are the core blocks we use for building solid assessments of social performance.
Now that you know what really works, how do you make it happen? The MSP Community takes you there.
The MSP Academy
Remember how social performance used to be considered a black box?
With the rise of groups like the Social Performance Forum, social performance is becoming much more effective and predictable.
And the Academy is the place you can find pragmatic courses, news, even template forms and plans that you can use to bring your social performance into alignment with the kind of good international practice funders want to support.

Especially when you’re trying to create a complex project – no matter how big it is. Although this often happens in a foreign culture, with the increasing pace of change it can be a very similar experience even at home as we struggle to understand local values, concerns and why people don’t seem to understand what we’re doing.read more
