PolicyLink founder and CEO Angela Glover Blackwell, discusses the necessity of tracking the achievement of goals through measurement. She talks about what makes a program a program—shared indicators and goals, and a laser-sharp focus on results. Blackwell stresses the importance of not just focusing on the science, but using an organization’s unique measurements to determine the effectiveness of an approach. Utilizing the Clear Impact Scorecard to determine whether goals are met can allow organization’s solid information to rethink and regroup. The Clear Impact Scorecard provides the confidence that programs are achieving goals set or if not, that they are able to use data collected to make changes to the approach for the good of the program.
