MVM Consultancy

Mutual value measurement consultancy package for individual co-operative and mutual enterprises

We recognise that implementing the Mutual Value Measurement Framework© involves a genuine commitment of time and resources for co-operatives and mutuals.

To deploy MVM effectively will require leadership from senior managers, board involvement and ultimately, engagement with your members.

To help with this process, we have designed a consultancy service that can help you as a mutual leader to understand the tool, apply it to your firm, and begin to take advantage of it.

Our consultancy service is designed through a four-step package that is intended to save you time and money by providing support to your executives responsible for implementing the MVM Framework.

Step 1 – Baseline review of business

  • Desktop review of the firm’s stated purpose, annual reports, marketing documentation etc
  • Consider the application of MVM criteria to existing practice

Step 2 – Workshop with key leaders/ stakeholders to go through MVM tool

  • Introduce MVM and reporting framework
  • Go through MVM reporting items, discuss individually
  • Using MVM – Test purpose, strategy and marketing against criteria of MVM

Step 3 – We Produce a Mutual value report statement

  • We will make an assessment of how the co-operative or mutual is performing against MVM reporting items
  • A written statement, which could be used to communicate to employees, clients, partner organisations and suppliers, the organisation's chosen approach to mutuality
  • We will share a draft report of this assessment with the mutual

Step 4 – Consider feedback and finalise statement

  • We will consider feedback from mutual
  • Finalising statement and providing report with recommended plans, drawing on case studies of different mutuals’ approach to each MVM criterion
  • Deliver final Mutual Value report to mutual

Potential add-ons/ follow up work:
