Using Data for Impact

The Education Redesign Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education launched the By All Means initiative in February 2016 to rethink education and child development systems. This national consortium is focused on building 21st-century systems featuring whole-child personalized learning, integrated health and social services, expanded enrichment opportunities, and other interventions to ensure child well-being and educational success. Drawing on best practices from collective impact and board governance, the Lab developed the Measures of Success framework to gauge the progress and success of its By All Means Children's Cabinets.

In the attached slides and the accompanying planning workbook, the Lab shares its initial templates for the Measures of Success framework to support others who are in the early stages of developing measurement frameworks for collaborative work. Please contact Lynne Sacks at for more information about the framework or to share your lessons learned about supporting data use in collaborative settings.
