Collect information/data so that it is easier to review in a group setting
Design data review processes so that all members of a group can participate and stay interested
Use the review and analysis process as the first step to taking action
Use a tool to see how well stakeholders perceive your products and/or services
Design a participatory process to improve the data review and analysis sessions you bring to the course to explore

“This course pushed me to think about how the groups I work with could become “experts” on their situations by talking to their constituents themselves. As a result, they believed what their constituents were saying far more than if I’d done it on my own.”
“I was dazzled by the tools. I have used the customer requirements matrix in many situations to help the group discover their real situation in a way this is engaging, meaningful and illuminating.”
