Certificate of Writing Outcome Measures

Wow your funders, help your board define success, and focus your programs on results.

Join us for the two-day Certificate of Writing Outcome Measures. You will learn how to take your organization from measuring outputs to measuring outcomes with hands-on activities to ensure that every participant leaves the session with at least two written outcomes for their programs.


We will focus on the actual writing of effective outcomes, with a very brief overview on data collection and dashboard creation, enabling you to display your outcomes. For more depth on the systems around data collection, tracking, and reporting, check out the Certificate of Outcome Management Systems.



At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the difference between an outcome and an output.
  • Write an outcome measure for your organization.
  • Describe how to set targets and find indicators



  • Program leaders
  • Fundraising/development leaders
  • Senior executives

"An eye-opening experience about the importance of dashboards and how to effectively use data. Before this class, dashboards were among my least exciting tasks to complete. I now look forward to expanding and customizing them to help in evaluating program outcomes to developing grant proposals and tracking results."
