Measure What Matters will include “everything you need to know about Measurement Standards including what they are, why you need them and how to influence them,” said Paine. “I’ll show you how to define your customized ‘kick butt’ index and how to align departmental goals with measurable objectives and benchmarks.” The seminar will also discuss appropriate measurement tools and what to do with data once you have it.
