Supporting informed decisions about shared measurement



Youth Development Executives of King County asked data2insight to provide decision support to their advisory committee as they considered how, or if, to move forward with a database system for shared measurement across their 80+ organizations.


We partnered with YDEKC staff and board and Elite Services and Support from October 2013 through January 2014 to:


  • Identify YDEKC member data systems needs and technology capacity as well as YDEKC’s organizational readiness for shared measurement;
  • Conduct research on best practices in shared measurement initiatives and existing data systems that the YDEKC system would need to interface with to inform YDEKC’s shared measurement efforts; and
  • Make a recommendation for a database system that would power a shared measurement initiative.
