"Documenting Intangible Outcomes"
The founder of Design Coalition Institute, Dr Susan Thering, began developing, testing, publishing, and teaching methods for documenting "intangible outcomes" in 2001, when she observed the growth in the effectiveness of "grassroots" organizations as they engaged in participatory community planning and design processes. She conducts workshops on the topic for state agencies, nonprofit, and community organizations.
