Design Thinking: How might I know if my change is having an impact? (Student Success Network)

All-Collab Summit Session

Tracking indicator data is an essential part of the improvement process, but it’s challenging to know what kind of data to collect, and how to use data to shift or scale a change idea. To explore this issue, participants read and discussed a case study drawn from the healthcare industry, learned about three key characteristics of a good indicator, and envisioned a narrative for an indicator important to their program by designing and sharing run charts.
