Engage - Stimulating Third Sector
Engagement in the Health Sector Supply Chain



Balance is an on-line diagnostic management analysis tool for Socially Enterprising Organisations, Sector Support Development Agencies and Enterprise Coaches.

Balance was created by Mike Bull and colleagues during 3 years of research with Social Enterprises and Third Sector Organisations and business support providers.

Balance stimulates critical reflection by identifying stages in organisational development. Through the process Balance supports positive changes in organisational development across Stakeholder Perspectives; Internal Activities; Multi-Bottom Line; Learning and Visioning.

Balance is designed for small to medium social enterprises, charities, social firms, community and voluntary organisations and co-operatives.

As part of this Engagement between TSOs, NHS Manchester and MMU a further development of balance will include a focus on the engagement in public service delivery.

TSOs taking part in the project will qualify for 2 years free access to Balance (for registration contact: Mike Bull on or 0161 247 3951)
