We’re in week 3 of the Family by Family prototype and are often asked: How will we measure success? There’s lots of different ways, but we’re particularly interested in how to capture changes in the behaviours families deem important. We’re now on iteration 5 of a measurement tool, and this week, will work on iteration 6!
We live in the information age, but what does all the information really tell us? How can we design measures that actually capture useful information, and more importantly, can gauge social impact? We share version 1.0 of our principles for good measurement. Good measures are (1) useful, (2) actionable, (3) purposeful, (4) ecological, and (5) positive.
