Impact Evaluation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Part of innovating effectively is being able to evaluate whether what you’re experimenting with has made a difference - and how far other environmental or design factors are influencing the outcome, for better or worse.

This session optionally pairs well with the Community Needs Assessment workshop on Monday.
