Blank worksheets for each indicator may be printed to use for note-taking, as the team discusses and decides on implementation and/or creates a plan and tasks


1. What is the straight-forward, literal meaning and intent of the indicator?

2. How would we know the extent to which the indicator is implemented?

3. What data must be analyzed to determine the level of implementation?

4. What does it look like now?


Wise Ways®The process manager should print or export and email a copy of each Wise Ways® to the team members a few days prior to the meeting, so they have time to evaluate exactly what the research says.
