YOU GET WHAT YOU MEASURE®

You Get What You Measure logo

You Get What You Measure® is our trademarked approach to strategic planning that incorporates measurement and can be used as a framework for evaluation. You Get What You Measure® is a values-based approach that incorporates systems thinking, creates a shared language, and allows people and individuals with diverse perspectives to share responsibility and accountability in achieving mutually beneficial goals. Federal and state government agencies, non-profit organizations, foundations, and boards of directors have found You Get What You Measure® to be a powerful approach that produces unique insights and adds value to their work. 

Download the You Get What You Measure® brochure or check out a brief video about You Get What You Measure® to learn more. You can also read about the approach in Robert Penna's book, The Nonprofit Outcomes Toolbox.
