This exercise will help you think about what you need to understand and improve your impact, and how data can help. You can do it individually but we recommend doing it with your team if you can. This might be a frontline staff team, management team, team of trustees, or all three! It will help if you have already worked through the questions in the planning section.
The data diagnostic asks 10 multiple choice questions about what your programme or service is, how it works and who it targets. It then provides a tailored report that discusses what kind of data you should consider collecting and how.
