Training Opportunity: Becoming a Measurement Guide

Yellow Wood Associates, Inc., of St. Albans, VT, is pleased to announce a training that will enable professional facilitators to deliver a powerful planning and evaluation tool, called You Get What You Measure, to their own clients. In development for over ten years, You Get What You Measure recognizes the importance of values in group work, incorporates systems thinking, and creates a culture of group learning. Unlike traditional strategic planning processes, You Get What You Measure explores in detail the connections between goals, indicators, measures, and the assumptions about how or whether specific actions will affect progress towards the goal.

Ideal measurement guide candidates are community development professionals in a variety of fields who are seeking to build the capacity of their organizations or communities to make real and measurable progress towards their goals. After completing the three-day Becoming a Measurement Guide training, participants will be well on their way to becoming a licensed guide able to deliver You Get What You Measure to clients of their choice. The training will be held at Yellow Wood Associates in St. Albans, VT, February 9-11, 2004. For more information, please visit our website at, call us (802-524-6141), or email us ( To maximize the amount of personal engagement and hands-on learning, this training has been limited to five participants, so please register early!

The You Get What You Measure process has been provided to a variety of clients, including the United States Forest Service, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Missouri Department of Economic Development, Rural Action of Ohio, and the Massachusetts Rural Development Council.
