Event description

Description

This workshop will provide hands-on training in using the Group Priority Sort method to identify stakeholders’ priorities. In particular, this workshop will show attendees how to use the method to ensure stakeholders’ priorities guide evaluations of social programs or initiatives. Attendees could also apply the method for other tasks, such as strategic planning or needs assessments.

Selecting the right set of items to measure and assess a social program or initiative’s performance is a difficult but important process. The reality is that most organizations only have the capacity to try to improve in a few areas at any one time, and collecting data that organizations do not have the capacity to act on takes away from achieving their social mission.

Further, different stakeholders often have different priorities for what performance information is most important. For example, staff may prioritize feedback from participants, while a funding agency may prioritize a set of longer-term outcomes, and another funder may prioritize a different set of measures.

We have found the Group Priority Sort method to be very useful in rapidly identifying a manageable set of performance measures that balances stakeholders’ priorities. Essentially, the Group Priority Sort method brings stakeholders together to come to a consensus on how to rank their priorities on a 1 to 5 scale. During the workshop, we’ll show attendees how to use existing logic models or theories of change to create a list of potential performance measures. Then, we’ll review how the Group Priority Sort method can help focus your measurement efforts on stakeholders’ priorities. Lastly, we will complete a practice run of the method.

We encourage you to sign-up early. To provide an optimal experience with the method, the workshop is limited to 10 people.
