Kristi Yuthas is the Swigert Endowed Professor of Management and Information Systems in the School of Business Administration at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. Before joining PSU, Dr. Yuthas worked in accounting, financial analysis, and information system development. She has held faculty positions at a number of universities, including American University and City University of New York, and has conducted research and training seminars in Asia, South America, and other places around the world.

Since joining PSU, Dr. Yuthas’ academic work has focused on organizational, ethical, and financial issues associated with information and performance measurement systems. In recent years, her research has expanded to study microfinance, microentrepreneurship, and scaling in the nonprofit sector. Dr. Yuthas has been recognized as a top-50 researcher worldwide in accounting systems, and as a leading researcher in a number of other areas. She has more than 100 publications and presentations in the fields of business and development.

In her professional work, Dr. Yuthas has two major streams of interest. She consults with large multinational companies on corporate social responsibility and sustainability, helping organizations implement their strategies through effective performance measurement and reporting systems. She also consults with social sector organizations and investors on issues relating to measuring, scaling, and amplifying social and environmental impact.

She is currently working on a book on corporate social responsibility in India. The recently passed Indian Companies Act requires large companies to allocate 2 percent of their profits toward social and environmental impact.

Through this work, she hopes to help Indian corporations maximize their social impact and to spread these pioneering ideas to other countries around the world. Dr. Yuthas lives in Portland, Oregon, with her three children, where they enjoy hiking, traveling, and exploring food carts.

This assessment is actually two assessments in one. I took it first from the investor's perspective and then a second time from the operator's perspectrive. It gave me insights into what's important from both sides.
