SHARED MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
Aligning Action and Tracking Progress on Shared Community Priorities
A shared measurement system (SMS) is a core element of an effective collective impact structure. It helps to clarify shared goals, creates accountability for change, organizes partners for action, and helps guide strategy design.
Together, the members of the Jackson Collaborative Network have defined a shared measurement system framework that focuses efforts on shared goals and outcomes, helps set strategic priorities for the community, and assists with aligning action and resources to address shared root cause priorities.
The shared measures framework is focused on ensuring individuals in the Jackson community achieve the following aims:
Our Basic Needs Are Met
We Are Safe
We Are Healthy
We Are Resilient
We Achieve Our Full Potential
Members are committed to taking action individually within their organizations, and collectively within the community, to address the root causes of systems issues that are producing inequitable outcomes for residents.
SHARED MEASUREMENT SYSTEM DASHBOARD
The Shared Measurement System Framework was developed by network members and partners to clarify shared goals, create accountability for change, align action around shared priorities for greater impact, and guide strategy desgn. Development and further refinement of the goals, metrics, and leading indicators is still in process.
The dashboard provided through the link below provides baseline data for shared measurement system goals that have been defined to date. A cross-sector workgroup of network partners is in the process of finalizing some of the remaining goal metrics based on sources of available data. Over time, this will be updated to include a dashboard that demonstrates progress over time specific to each defined goal.
