How Can we MEASURE Mindset Change?
Miranda, Consultant, Netherlands, Member

1. How can we measure the improvements made on changing the mindset? (interviewing, observing, testing..?)
2. What exactly are we measuring? (stages, capabilities, reactions...?)
3. Did someone develop a tool such as an Excel sheet allowing us to keep track of the changes in mindset during a change process?...Register
