Program Success is an organization’s ability to assess the impact of its programs and direct services.

  • The difference between causality and correlation, and how each can influence the goals we set and pursue.

  • How a mix of behavioral and results-focused goals can supercharge your work around program success.

  • How to identify goals that are both realistic and relevant.

  • What an "evaluative culture" looks and feels like.

  • Team goal-setting, including impact, process, and output goals.
