Project Description

Co-creating social value involves multiple project partners in a network of operations working together to make a difference. Such networks may involve public sector bodies, private sector organisations, and third sector enterprises. Often the partners’ priorities and mission vary widely, and it may be challenging to maintain focus and momentum on creating social value, especially when other pressing business concerns (such as economic constraints) are brought to fore. How do project partners then negotiate and re-negotiate the terms so that the potential social impact is not compromised?
