We then turn our attention to the long underdeveloped issues related to measurement and evaluation of social strategy. In Chapter 12 , we examine the methods for measuring the economic value of social action, such as conjoint analysis, hedonic pricing, and contingent valuation. Given the limitations of net present value methods, we present real options as an especially useful method of evaluation of the economic value created by social projects. Finally, drawing from the project management literature, the chapter summarizes some of the many methods available to evaluate the social impacts of social projects.

Unfortunately, strategic CSR leads to a problem. The “CSR conundrum,” as we have termed it, turns on the following problem: if the motivation for social action is proit, then it is not social action but simply good business.
