Brief overview

Data is an essential element of improvement, providing both focus on and proof of successful outcomes. During this two-day course you will understand how measurement for improvement differs from that for accountability and research.

You will learn key tools and techniques for collecting, displaying and analysing data for improvement. Facilitators use a hands-on approach giving participants practical experience constructing and interpreting the various charts and graphs.
