Measuring What Matters


BALLE (The Business Allience For Local Living Economies) and B Lab, each leading organizations working to promote business as a force for good, have collaborated to develop a measurement tool for local business converrners across North America, including local business networks, incubators/accelerators, local community development organizations, and others. 

The BALLE Quick Impact Assessment (QIA) is a short, custom version of B Lab's Business Impact Assessment (BIA), with a strong emphasis on Localism- practices that support healthy, sustainable communities backed by strong, resilient local economies. The BALLE QIA is designed to help businesses measure and improve their impact on the communities and to help local conveners gain insights into the ecosystem of businesses that they support.
