Our Measures That Matter Residency includes access to a licensed framework, so members must agree to user terms to access materials.

If you are a top executive who has not yet signed the user terms, contact Devereaux Morkunas for access.
The Measures That Matter Residency includes and is guided by implementation expertise from Mutuo, with access for member pools to an independently validated and licensed framework developed by BCCM and Monash University. Member pools will agree to user terms to access residency materials.
AGRiP is licensing the Mutual Value Measurement Framework© (MVM) for our members to adapt and use as Measures That Matter.

The Mutual Value Measurement Framework© is used across industries and by cooperatives and mutuals of different sizes.
