SROI Analysis

The SROI analysis is currently a very widespread form of comprehensive impact analysis. As part of an SROI analysis, a causal impact model is created for a specific project, program or organization. The effects identified in the individual impact chains are measured and, where possible, monetized. The core of the SROI analysis is the approach of juxtaposing, as far as possible, monetary effects of all possible interventions, activities, projects, programs or organizations, with the capital invested there. The result is presented in the form of a highly aggregated key figure, the SROI value. In doing so, it focuses heavily on the stakeholders, who receive a concrete service, which in turn triggers effects. The following figure shows this basic relationship.
