What is Mutual Value Measurement?

One of the greatest challenges for co-operatives and mutuals (CMEs) is to be able to quantify and communicate consistently the value that our businesses create. That’s why the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) teamed up with researchers at Monash University, our members and the co-operative and mutual enterprise sector, to find a new way of measuring our positive impact on our members, our customers, the community and the economy – the Mutual Value Measurement (MVM).

The Mutual Value Measurement Framework helps CMEs to measure their total value creation (mutual value) through a set of common dimensions and shared language about measuring and reporting mutual value.

The MVM Framework can be used by CMEs across different industries, of different sizes, and with different capabilities. The Framework has been field-tested through research by Monash University’s Business School and is available with an implementation guide and templates that will allow interested CMEs to assess and plan the full adoption of the Framework.
