I’m not sure if it’s the stay at home orders , or the rising importance of metrics and data in the communications decision-making process, but more and more people have been asking me about how to learn more about measurement.   On the PRSA forums yesterday, the question came up and there were a ton of responses and referrals.

We decided to assemble the answers along with some research of our own into a table that people can use to help them decide what the best solution for thier schedule and needs might be.   I’ll be continuing to update it so if I’m missing a great course that you know about please get in touch!

Here you go.
