Replication, not innovation: Weekly roundup – April 26th 2013

by David McGlashan

I thought it might be useful to roundup any useful links / articles etc that I’ve seen on my travels around the web each week. Not exactly a groundbreaking idea (and one that we have borrowed from elsewhere) but hopefully you’ll find something worthwhile that you may have missed!

A commonly asked question! This is a useful report put together by Morrison Foerster and Trust Law examining the different options available when setting up a social enterprise and which provides a good starting point:

2.  Profit Meets Purpose: Why Social Entrepreneurship Suggests a Possible Future for Global Capitalism

An interesting article from McKinsey’s head of social impact Denielle Sachs.

3.  Reminder – Ashoka Join Our Core applications close on May 3rd

Ashoka and Ben and Jerry’s Join Our Core competition closes on May 3rd – on offer is 10,000 Euros, 6 months of mentoring from @AshokaUK and a trip to Vermont :

4.  Social Media Calendar: Concepts and Ideas Across Channels

As SSE’s marketeer, I’m always tools that will help our social media output.  This calendar is a useful way to plan how you are going to be delivering a message across a number of different channels.  Thanks to @charitychap for bringing it to my attention.

5.  10 of the Worst Examples of Management Speak

Amusing (and 100% accurate?) article from the Guardian.  I’m not telling you how many of these are regularly used at SSE.
