4 Ways to Supercharge Your Social Enterprise Through Accountability

4 Ways to Supercharge Your Social Enterprise Through Accountability | Third Sector Innovation | Scoop.it

It means, at its heart, getting the accountability relationships right between the people who make decisions — in governments, businesses, and all other relevant organizations — in order to ensure the outcomes are fair, inclusive, and sustainable.
