Measuring Positive Impact (Explicit)

M. Sanjayan, CEO of Conservation International, describes the challenge of measuring conservation efforts, especially those that encompass complex systems. One way he assesses success is by asking himself if a project will continue even after the organization leaves. “There is no pride in being in a place for a very long time if you’re a nonprofit,” he says. “Your job should be to put yourself out of a job in every place you work.”
