··What Is Social Impact Consulting?

Social Impact vs. Traditional Management Consulting

First question you may ask when you come across the term social impact consulting is how it differs from the traditional management consulting.

While traditional management consulting focuses on improving the performance of organizations often following the “best practices” in the industry, social impact consulting takes a broader approach and focuses on creating social improvements for several stakeholders involved in the organization. In other words, social impact consulting doesn’t only create improved shareholder value, but also long-lasting and sustainable improvements to everyone who is directly or indirectly involved in the activities of the social impact consulting organization. In the case of 180 Degrees Consulting, an important factor of all of its operations is also the fact that the organization runs on bro bono basis – this meaning that employees do not receive salary and clients are not obliged to pay for the consulting services.
