RE: [wg-e] Looking for editors for Part 3 and Part 4
It seems to me that we need to establish procedures for
measuring the effectiveness of outreach activities. How
effective have the activities to date been? We need to
collect and analyze data regarding past activities as well
as activities going forward so that we can focus energies in
improvingly effective ways.
Do we have good records for the outreach efforts that have
already occurred (e.g., number of participants, geographical
regions represented, evaluation forms, etc.)? If not, we
should make sure that we do in the future so that we have
the data to evaluate the effectiveness of what we do.
We need to be able to answer the question, "are outreach
efforts successful?" If they are not, we need to look for
new strategies. If they are, we need to do more of them and
continue to improve them.
