To measure the evolution and progress of different types of interventions for their contribution to the expected cultural development.
Type of measurement
1 – Measurement of the effectiveness of training programmes.
2 – Measurement of the effectiveness of interventions in: communication and participation.
3 – Measurement of the effectiveness of self-management systems.
4 – Customised measurements.
Tailored for each case.
For example, in training programmes formatted with sessions of 8h+4h+4h spread over 2 months, they are measured at the outset, during, when finished and at the end of 9 or 12 months. Conclusions are drawn about progress by groups and individuals and conclusions are also drawn about the effectiveness of the topics covered and which topics have contributed to the development of others.
The measurements are based on 'ad hoc' surveys and thereafter a statistical processing of the data is carried out drawing conclusions and correlations.
In interventions related to the systems, questions are included which relate to 'statements' made by people in the group, i.e. to what degree the manner of carrying out the process (at the level of participation, information and training) and the group's perception of this process, is contributing to the success of the intervention itself.
Varies depending on measurement type and volume.
