Attendees learned how food hubs have used You Get What You Measure®, a systems-based analysis to identify their priority measures that will tell them if they are making progress towards their goals.  The first part of the session shared examples of useful measures for making progress toward infrastructure, marketing and food hub viability goals.  Participants heard from Kristen Suokko about how the process of measurement is informing their work. In the second part, participants drafted their own internal and external goals and learned how to frame indicators of progress.
