Incorporating evaluation within programmes from the outset will help to evaluate what benefits they introduce and how effective they are. This is particularly important for new methods, although will also help to continually evaluate more established tools.
Monitoring can take a number of different forms, any may include reviewing individual measures; organisational measures of staff engagement and motivation; the use of return on investment (ROI) tools; and review of qualitative and or quantitative data.
