How to Establish a Data Management Baseline within the Human Services Industry
Keywords:measurement baseline tool, data management
Growing data management capacity can be a real challenge in the human services field. Most agencies have basic information, such as the number of clients served, number of communities supported, and number of partnerships. However, some organizations lack a cohesive way of collecting more detailed data, which leads to each program having different information or a lack of accurate information. Because there is a lack of industrywide standards when it comes to what data is important and how to collect it, KenCrest CEO and President Marian Baldini created a tool that human services organizations can use to determine their baseline and take their capacity to the next level. Baldini explains and shares the tool to chart an agency’s course.
