Outcomes

The team partners in developing infrastructures of knowledge, information, indicators, tools, and technology; guides and assists processes of organizational policy formulation and strategic planning; accompanies headquarters and field managers and workers in the assimilation and application of the principles of outcome thinking in their work; and fosters the self-capacity of organizations, enabling them to perform processes of planning, ongoing measurement, and the proficient use of information.
