What is success?

Both the Museum and Library final reports show the program generally meeting or exceeding the targets set for success. But what if your program doesn’t? Can the report still be a success?

A good report includes an honest accounting of what happened plus an analysis of why you succeeded, as well as where you fell short. It allows others to learn from the experience.

Most important, a good report allows YOU to learn from the experience.

Question your lack of success to learn from it. 

  • What didn’t happen? Fixable? (Yes/No, but…)
  • What did happen? Avoidable? (Yes/No, but…)
  • How close did you get?
  • Did you achieve a valuable Y instead of the intended X?
  • What will you do differently?
