  • Is unsure of what makes up a “good” outcome;
  • Is unsure how to identify the outcomes your organization is or should be working toward;
  • Is not sure how to work with outcomes, how to track and manage toward them;
  • Does not know how (or why) to assess your programs’ or organization’s capacity;
  • Is unsure how best to capture the insights and learnings from your programs;
  • Is unsure the best way to communicate your results to audiences you need to impress;
  • Is unsure of how or why to apply the concepts of outcomes to facets of your organization beyond its programs;
  • Would like stronger analytical tools to help you better assess the strengths or weaknesses of your programs
