Measurement Base Camp Spring 2024, our online training course in research, measurement and evaluation.

Why Measurement Base Camp?

Most communications professionals have listened to at least one, if not many, lectures on how to do measurement right. The challenge is, once they’ve heard the theory, how do they implement it at their place of work?

What sounds great in a lecture hall can end up being a complex situation when one is faced with a limited budget, no staff, and competing priorities.
