Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. trained 26 people from the Missouri Departments of Economic Development, Health, and Mental Health, in You Get What You Measure®, Yellow Wood’s unique approach to measuring progress toward goals. Participants applied You Get What You Measure® to the Multi-Agency Initiative and prepared to take the process into communities across the state. The purpose of the Multi-Agency Initiative was to increase communication and collaboration between community-level workers in the three agencies for the benefit of communities.

"Capacity building indicators and assessment is something I can use with my community that is simple and will open useful discussions."
