Session Title & Description

"Designing Surveys for Organizational Evaluation and Improvement"

How do you know if your organization is achieving its objectives? How effective are your organization’s activities? Measuring your organization’s progress toward its project success factors is essential to its maintenance and continual improvement. Well-designed surveys of your stakeholders can elicit much of this essential information.

In this interactive session, participants will learn why, when, and how to use surveys to collect data needed to measure progress toward organizational project success factors.

We will discuss keys to designing an effective survey so that participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on their own survey needs
  • Discuss the strategies and how they would provide actionable information for their organization
  • Draft survey items that address their organization’s needs or opportunities

This session will conclude with a brief discussion of analyzing and reporting survey results.
