“It’s not just about identifying outcomes and metrics, it’s also about building a learning organization, one that has a culture of relentless commitment to improvement. An organization with a performance measurement culture uses measurement not just for compliance but for finding all of the nooks and crannies of a program model that can be adjusted and improved in pursuit of the bottom line: serving people better and getting better results.” — Stephen Pratt, Partner, Director Of Advisory Services, Root Cause
