Identify indicators of impact
To track the impact of your solution, keep an eye out for indicators (both positive and negative). For instance, if your goal was to increase teacher collaboration across your district, and your solution was a monthly after-school "unconference", a possible indicator could be the growing similarity of evaluation approaches at various schools in the district. Another indicator could be the number of informal cross-district professional learning communities that develop. Make sure to take note of key changes that occur -- they may be a result of your solution.
Often teams look for only the positive and intended consequences. To get a full view of impact, it is critical to challenge yourself to look for the negative and unintended consequences of solutions.
