About MVM

Measuring what matters to co-ops and mutuals

As values-based businesses, the greatest challenge for co-operatives and mutuals is to let our values shine. That’s why the BCCM teamed up with researchers at Monash University, our members and the co-operative and mutual enterprise sector, to find a new way to measure our positive impact on our members, our customers, the community and the economy.

Enter the Mutual Value Measurement Framework© – a powerful tool designed to help co-operatives and mutuals measure their total value creation (mutual value) through a set of common dimensions and shared language about measuring and reporting mutual value.

Versatile and adaptable, the MVM Framework is suitable for co-operatives and mutuals of varying sizes and across different industries. The framework has been field-tested through research by Monash University's Business School.

Upon registration, co-operatives and mutuals will be given access to an implementation guide and templates to help them assess and plan for the full adoption of the MVM Framework.

Measuring Mutual Value

The Mutual Value Measurement Framework uses six dimensions to cover the unique areas of value that co-operatives and mutuals generate.

BUSINESS BENEFITS OF MVM

Integrating the Mutual Value Measurement Framework into your co-op or mutual puts a spotlight on the mutual value you create, resulting in direct business and commercial benefits. 

Research Study and Team

The Mutual Value Measurement Framework was developed by accounting researchers from Monash Business School, Australian National University and Warwick Business School, UK. 

Partners

BCCM and Monash University worked with these Industry Partners, Field Study Partners and Research Partners when developing the Mutual Value Measurement Framework.

"The outcomes of the measures have had a positive impact on our thinking and what can we do to further foster and create value through member services, enhanced and easy participation, tailored training and coverage in an open and transparent way. Our members are surveyed on these values and can tell us what’s most important and valuable to them which in turn helps us strategically create and deliver what they need."
